This pulled pork could not be easier! I used a pork loin roast for this but you could used tenderloin. I trimmed off the huge slab of fat on the side but you don't have to. I also used about 16 oz of homemade BBQ instead of the bottled stuff. The pork turned out very tender! I served this on toasted hamburger buns with creamy slaw, pickles, and some hot sauce.

Amazing good and surprisingly easy! What more do you need? I trimmed fat from bone in country pork ribs, poured on the root beer, and later removed the bone. The meat before the bbq sauce addition was a surprise. It was sweet & nicely flavored. Adding the sauce made good bbq sliders served with Jalapeno Corn Slaw #468395. Was this "true" BBQ? No, but it's easy, requires few ingredients, and is GOOD. That makes it a hit for my family. Thank you for sharing the recipe! Made for Spring 2013 Pick A Chef.
