Root Beer Pulled Pork Sandwiches

Pulled pork sandwiches are a favorite dinner around here and I have quite a few recipes on this blog for pulled pork, but I hadn't tried this one yet. This recipe has been going around the food blogs like crazy. It is a super easy way to cook pulled pork and the result is awesome. We had these sandwiches and chips for dinner on Super Bowl night (not that we are actually football fans, but we did watch some of it - mostly for the commercials :)) and my whole family gobbled dinner down without complaint. Thanks for the recipe blogland!

Root Beer Pulled Pork Sandwiches

2, 2 lb pork picnic roasts (or a 4 lb pork butt/shoulder roast)
2 cans root beer
1 bottle of your favorite barbecue sauce, plus more for serving
hamburger buns or homemade rolls

Place pork roasts in slow cooker (I use picnic roasts, which are small pork shoulder roasts because they are easier to shred at the end). Pour root beer over the roasts. Cover and cook on low for 7-8 hours. Remove pork and discard liquid in slow cooker. Shred pork, removing fatty pieces, and return to slow cooker. Add barbecue sauce, using about 3/4 of the bottle. Toss pork with sauce to coat. Fill hamburger buns with pork and top with more barbecue sauce.
