This was originally a pulled pork recipe taken from a Blog called Notes From The Trenches. I changed some things up with the original recipe, subbing root beer for the water called for in the original version. Not "real" BBQ but a tender, slightly sweet shredded meat for sandwiches.

Ingredients Nutrition

  • 5 lbs chuck roast
  • 1 cup root beer
  • salt, to taste


  1. Place roast in crockpot and sprinkle with salt.
  2. Pour rootbeer over roast.
  3. Set crockpot on low and cook for 10 hours.
  4. Shred meat and add BBQ sauce, if desired.
