Do not, do not, do not use DIET Dr. Pepper. I did, and while the tenderloin was certainly pull-apart tender, there was zero flavor imparted to it from the soda. Might as well have used water. I'm trying to fix it now, with a little Cholula and some brown sugar. If that doesn't give it some kick, I'll just be sure to use plenty of sauce. I'll update this review after. But still, 4 stars because it's my bad for not using a sugared soft drink. ****** UPDATE: I wrapped the pork, juice and all, in foil overnight. Today, it was very moist and had just a hint of sweet from the brown sugar. So I went ahead and sauced it, reheated on the stove, and served it. We all loved it, so it now gets 5 stars. So easy, so good. I'll be making this again with a pork loin to save $ and the root beer as the recipe states, plus a dash of liquid smoke, just because. If I'd followed the recipe exactly it would still be 5 stars.
