This was my first time making pulled pork, and I probably should have tried it before I needed several pounds of it for a graduation party, but it worked out in the end! I wanted a lot of it, so I bought a 6.5-lb pork tenderloin and cut it in half to make it fit my 6.5-quart slow cooker (for the record, you can expect to fit about a pound per quart in a slow cooker). I made the mistake of setting it to probe cook, and at 6:30 a.m., it was cooked, but tough. I reset it, and again, it turned itself off before the pork was ready for shredding. I'm going to guesstimate it took about 10 hours to cook, but when it was finally ready, it was perfect! I'd simply covered it with the root beer, and after shredding it, I used Hunt's original BBQ sauce (I am allergic to red pepper and it's one of the few I can eat, but it's really tasty). It was a huge hit and we'll be adding this to our regular dinner options, albeit with a much smaller quantity!
