      This was pretty darn good! Myself, I'm usually not all that keen on the larger cuts of meat, but I really enjoyed this. The root beer (I used A&W) not only makes for a very tender cut of pork but it makes for a very flavorful sauce. I purchased the Heinz chili sauce as you suggested and I liked the combination of heat and sweet (cooking the sauce really creates an appetite from the wonderful smell wafting throughout the house). The whole family cleaned up on this dish and I would definitely make this again. I'm submitting a photo in gratitude Diana, and I thank you once again for sharing such a delicious recipe!

      This came out fantastic...very tender and juicy. The sauce was very tasty. The only thing I did different was adding more hot sauce than the recipe calls for. The heat was a good compliment to the sweetness of the sauce.

      Nice flavor in the sauce. I cut back on the onions.
