This turned out great. When I cook for my immediate family, I use pork tenderloin, but when I cooked for 25 people, I used a pork shoulder and cut off the fat. Much cheaper! I used Pepsi, instead of Root Beer, because it's what I had on hand. I cooked in a slow cooker the day before the party, and let it cook some more the next day with water in the bottom, to keep it moist. Then pulled it apart and added the barbecue sauce. Let it cook until we were ready to eat and it turned out great. This is a great meal for those on a budget. I paid $25 for a large shoulder roast and it could of fed my immediate family 15 to 20 times. The one thing I would of done differently, is I wish I had separate a third of it out, before adding the sauce, so people that didn't want the sauce on, could have it plain. That would work good, if you wanted to add it to other recipes too! After feeding 25 people one day and another 15 the second day, we were still able to freeze 2 large gallon size bags of pulled pork. Great recipe!
