This is delicious! I chopped the onion and cooked the pork on high for almost 6 hours. It was perfect! I used less sauce (personal preference) and served the pork on large Kaiser rolls. This was perfectly accompanied with fresh coleslaw. Made for my adopted chef for Fall PAC 2011. Thanks Teriffic! :)

Wonderful! This was such an easy and delicious way to prepare pulled pork. I sliced the onion and cooked on low for 6 hours, when it was already falling apart. As we have a variety of preferences on type of bbq sauce, I served the pork as-is and put out all the different sauces from which to choose. Thanks for sharing! PAC Fall '11

My family enjoyed this different take on pulled pork. The root beer really adds a nice flavor which you can taste through the bbq sauce. Will definitely make again! Made for PAC fall 2011.
