I hate to leave a negative review, but for those who aren't big on really sweet meats, I feel like I should. Like many others, I used a 5 lb. pork shoulder cut, used a light rub, and 3 cans of root beer. It made my house smell sickly sweet when it was cooking. When it was done, I dumped the liquid, fork shredded it, and mixed in Sweet Baby Ray's BBQ sauce and put pack in the crock pot for another hour. It has a strangely sweet smell and after-taste, similar to cream soda..? I'm still trying to find a way to salvage it. Maybe it was because the root beer came out of a can, but I'm not going to try it again. I'll have to pass on this recipe.
