Top Review by Shuffler

Feb 4th 2008. This was the first thing I have ever made in a crock pot and I really am just a guy learning how to cook. But I got a few tips and I made it for my Super Bowl Party and EVERYone loved it. I changed the recipe a bit though, I poured in the pot a can of rootbeer and a can of pineapple chunks first added the roast, cooked it for eight hours. The carbonation of the soda made it so tender I then strained the rootbeer out of the crockpot leaving only the pineapple chunks. I then stirred in the BBQ sauce and let it cook on low for another 2 hours. My guest were in heaven! thanks!!!
