I used a pork shoulder and 1 can of root beer, cooking on low in the slow cooker for 7 hours and then attempting to shred, but I think that it could have cooked a lot longer (we were pressed for time so we couldn't wait). I had to slice the meat as it didn't come out too tender, then put it in a casserole dish with the bbq sauce and cooked on 350° for 30 minutes or so. The flavour was great but the tenderness wasn't quite there. Next time I will take the advice of others here and cover the meat with root beer, cooking for about 10 hours on low, and then try the shredding. Easy recipe, just needed longer with a shoulder!
