Best Crock Pot Pulled Pork

We just love Pulled Pork and it really is one of the easiest meats to prepare for a crowd of people or little batches for the freezer.  This is a great Pulled Pork recipe and is very moist which is one of the reasons we just loved it.  We have served this Pulled Pork for large parties and just pulled a small frozen serving from the freezer and had a nice Pulled Pork Sandwich, this is an all around great recipe.

  2. That looks like some delectable pulled pork - the root beer sounds like such a great addition. I'm sure it's a definite crowd pleaser. :)

  3. Root beer? really? this will be a fun variation to try and a good excuse to pull out the crock pot again.

  4. Oh that pulled pork looks amazing! Great SRC choice!

  13. Love this stuff. That looks like summer supper to me.

  14. that looks amazing! LOVE pulled Pork!!

  15. I love the idea of the root beer and the rub in the pulled pork. Fabulous recipe-will have to save this. The slow cooker is great to use in the summer especially! Great pics.

  16. Pulled pork's such a great (and easy) food to make! The root beer addition sounds interesting, and I might have to give it a try. :)

  17. This sounds so good, Miz Helen! I'll have to give it a try. Your picture looks so appetizing. Happy weekend to you!

  18. You know, I love pulled pork, but I don't think I've ever made it before. And I just threw my crockpot out the other day too :( I'll have to come back to this once I replace the pot.

    Thanks for sharing on Foodie Friday!

  19. This looks amazing!!!

  20. Mouthwatering deliciousness! Thank you so much for sharing at Simple Supper Tuesday, Miz Helen!

  21. That looks so good, Mrs. Helen! I confess that I'm not one for pulled pork – I live near a BBQ capital so I love my brisket and sausage! – but I do love crock pot meals! :) Thanks for the inspiration! :) (I'm over from Sweet Tea Social. :)

  22. Pulled pork in the crock pot. Perfect :) Visiting from The Gathering Spot :)

  23. Looks amazing. However, I'm having such a tough time getting my pork to the shredding stage. I think I have to start it in the morning or use a smaller Boston butt.

  24. Sharing on FB and pinned as one of this week's features at Freedom Fridays!

    Thanks so much for sharing:))

    Hugs, my Friend!

  25. i dont like root beer . is there any other soda i can use instead of root beer. i just dont care for the taste at all. can you taste it in the meat or not when you use this recipe? let me know please.... thanks.

    1. Hi Kay,
      You could use any cola like Coke, Dr. Pepper or Peppsi. You really can't taste the soda at all it is more for the flavor and serves as a tenderizer for the meat. Thanks for stopping by and sure hope you enjoy the Pulled Pork.
      Miz Helen
