Marmie's Really Tender Crock Pot Pulled Pork

READY IN: 32hrs
Recipe by Marmies

I was fiddling around with trying to make a yummy Pulled Pork for my stepson Jesse's wedding rehearsal party. I did one butt in the oven without soda and one in the crock pot with soda. I had never used soda pop in a recipe before but I heard it was worth a try and YES it was! The Crock pot recipe turned out so tender, moist and delicious, (according to the thirty something guests...this was a real hit.) Well worth trying and very easy to make. A lovely outdoor or 'big game' meal served with a variety of salads and crusty buns. Oh, and beer. Posted by request for my new daughter in law Lindsey's Mom.

  6. Remove from fridge and rub remaining spices onto the roast.
  7. Place roast in covered crock pot for an hour or two, do not turn on yet.
  8. Pour soda into crock pot along side of the roast so the spices are not washed offt the top of the roast and into the crock pot.
