      We found this recipe way too sweet. The cooking of the meat and onions worked out well, and in that step, the root beer only added what my husband calls a "twang" and was not overpowering. I could never get the sauce to thicken up, and it was just sickly sweet. I plan to make this again, but substitute another bbq sauce for the sauce ingredients called for here.

      The meat in the recipe turned out very tender. Before shredding, I pulled off the fat. Adding the rootbeer concentrate to this recipe work better than other recipes that called for 3 cups of rootbeer. The sauce was thicker. I placed the shredded pork in a bowl and poured the sauce directly on top; toss to coat meat with sauce.

      We liked this recipe, but the sauce ended up being very watery. We'll make it again and figure out how to thicken it up...
