This is a recipe that I have read about on several different sites and finally had to try. It doesn't get much easier than this, and the results are perfect:
salt, pepper, and garlic for a rub
1 can root beer
Your favorite barbecue sauce
The rubbed down roast needs to be placed in a crock pot and pierced several times. Pour the can of root beer over it and cook on low for eight hours. After this cooking time, the roast is ready to be shredded and should be melt-in-your-mouth tender. Drain the soda and return the shredded pork to the crock pot. Pour your favorite sauce over it and cook for an additional hour.
I served the shredded pork with cole slaw and fried pickles, and it was a huge success.
