"Makes great barbecue sandwiches! You can use your favorite cola and sauce to vary the tastes. Good to freeze in smaller portions and pull out as needed."

"Delicious & oh so easy! Cooked this overnight, and by lunch the next day had BBQ sandwiches. Used 2 lb pork roast, kraft original BBQ sauce, & Coke. Very sweet tasting sauce. "
"I rubbed the roast with some sprinkles of salt, pepper, and garlic powder. I placed a couple onion slices on the bottom of the crockpot. I used Dr. Pepper and Sweet Baby Ray's BBQ sauce. In fact, I was in a hurry and turned the crock on high. The roast still turned out great. It tasted just like the bbq at a national bbq chain restaurant. Thanks for this recipe!"
"I thought this recipe was fun and easy. You should have seen the looks I got when I opened the cola! I liked the flavor of the sauce- it didn't over-power the pork. I did add some chopped onion. Will certainly make this again."
"Wow! This was just unbelievable. I was afraid, reading a few other reviews that the Coke flavor would be too intense. However, it was really faint, but DELICIOUS! My mom and I adjusted a few things: First of all, we added some S and P (salt and pepper), just to allow the flavors to pop. I added a bottle of Bulls-Eye, and a few squirts of Dr. Pepper BBQ Sauce (recipe #66518). It may seem like a lot of BBQ sauce, but this meat is so absorbent, it just drinks it up. Second, I used Caffeine Free Coca-Cola (a tip from my science teacher). Third, I cooked it in less time: During my snack break (when my mom lets me take a "brain break"), I poured the CF Coke over a beautiful pork roast Mom got yesterday. I let it go in the Crock-Pot on high for 6 hours, finishing it up on low for 1 hour, because when it did finish up, it was just falling apart. This is simply wonderful. We're having it for dinner tonight!"
"At first I didn't have success with this recipe as the 12 hours that the recipe says to cook was too long. So I tried it a second time a week later only cooking it about 8 hours total. Then I added the sauce after I took the meat out and shredded it and did not return it to the crock pot. And behold!!! A recipe that was a husband pleaser. This will become a staple in our household."
"This is the basis for perfect pulled pork! I've made it countless times and perfect it even more each time. I suggest you add sliced onions and/or pepper to the mix as well while slow cooking. Delicious."
"This recipe was so simple I think my 6 year old could make it. I cooked this overnight, drained in the morning and added my KC Masterpiece, onion and more coke. We trimmed trees all day long so this was the best lunch after a hard days work. My brother who hasn't been over for dinner much was real surprised at my BBQ Sandwiches. Compared them to this place that we go to in Centerville. Now that is a compliment!!!! This recipe is a keeper!!!!"
"This is something I make often and my hubby loves it, but I had never used cola and now I will never do it any other way! I was surprised that we could actually detect the cola flavor. It was delicious! I cooked a 5 lb roast and poured one can of Caffeine free diet pepsi on top (that's all the soda we had). I cooked it on high for 8 hrs, drained and shredded the meat. Then poured about half a can of soda and a bottle of BBQ sauce (Kraft) over the top. Mixed it well, then cooked it one more hour on high. It was perfectly delicious! Thanks!"
"This is wonderful! I bought a bottle of Coke and poured half on the pork when I first put it in the crock pot. Then in the morning I poured out the juices and then poured the rest of the bottle of Coke on it along with the BBQ sauce. I used Open Pit and it was spicy enough to balance out the sweetness of the Coke. Will make again and I can't wait to freeze some of the batch I just made."
"Very Tasty. Followed the recipe but did roast it on top of a bed of onions in the crockpot. I also seasoned the meat with salt & pepper before cooking."
"I do this with a beef roast and it is just yummmmy! Thanks for a keeper! I use the beef roast as I do not eat pork, not to completely alter the recipe to suit my palate."
"This was great! I thought it might be too sweet for my DH's taste, but he loved it (as well as I). Kids didn't care for it - oh well, more for us. I used two 2 lb. roasts and cooked them about 14 hours (that's when I had time to pull the pork). I did put about 1/2 cup of water in with the pork because I wasn't sure if they would dry out or stick to the bottom. Had plenty of juice when they were done. After pulling the pork, added other ingredients and cooked about 5 hours and served. Wonderful! I froze enough for at least 3 more dinners. Thanks for the receipe Tish!"
"Great recipe! My kids didn't care for it but my husband and I thought it was very good. I used a very small pork roast and it only needed to cook for about 5 hours on high. I added half the coke and 2 cups of Bobbie q sauce recipe 59772 and it was ready to eat 3 hous later. I only wish I would have made a bigger roast so that i would have had some leftovet to freeze!"
"This was great & couldn't be eaiser! I had a 4 lb. roast & cooked it overnight, maybe 12 1/2-13 hrs. Just 2 hrs after adding cola & sauce. DH ate 3 at one sitting. Great w/coleslaw and baked beans."
"This is an excellent recipe! Very easy and quick to make. It freezes well too. My picky family loves it too!"
"Tish, I love this recipe; it's so simple. The first time I made it I used a pork roast and made it exactly as your recipe indicated. The second I made it I used baby back ribs, and the third time I made it I used short ribs. With the ribs I added some onions, sliced very thin. I cooked them in the crockpot, but only for ~6-8 hrs. on low. Delicious!! Thanks for sharing."
"This was very yummy. I'm in North Carolina, so of course this isn't considered "real" barbeque, but it was quite tasty. Very sweet. I would try onion next time to cut the sweetness. The first time I made it, I did it with the timing given. The second time I did about 10 hours and then 4 and it turned out perfectly fine and I was using two, 2 lbs pork roasts."
"This was delicious! I failed to read that it needed to cook so long and I only cooked it on high for about 5-6 hours. (it was a small roast 2-3 lbs.) I then poured the bbq sauce on it and let it cook for another hour. Even though it didn't cook as long, it still had intense flavor and my husband and I loved it for leftover sandwiches. I used Weber BBQ sauce and even though I usually try to make my own sauce, I find it is better to just use a bought one. UPDATE: excellent topped with Easy Cole Slaw Recipe #294620."
"12 hours overnight using low setting and coke zero as the cola. Pulled away from bone and returned to crock pot with KC Masterpiece Original and spiced it up a bit with some hot sauce and creole seasoning. Let the crock-pot work it's magic on low for 2 hours and the wonderful aroma overtook me. I sampled it and ...WOW! Very good stuff!!! Having some friends over tonight to join my family for some serious barbecue sandwich devouring. Will pair with chips, potato salad and baked beans for a casual dine-in. And, some Maker's Mark to boot!"
