Root Beer Pulled Pork

Crockpot Sunday’s have become a ritual in our house during the fall and winter months. Slow cooking is genius, convenient for a busy day of errands and I can always guarantee the house smelling delicious. So now that it’s officially Fall I busted out the crockpot and got cooking.


  • Boneless Pork Butt/Shoulder
  • 1 Can of Root beer
  • BBQ Sauce (I used Stubb’s Sweet Hickory)
  • Salt
  • Pepper
  • Smoke Paprika
  • Garlic powder
  • Onion powder
  • Cinnamon
  • Brown sugar


  1. Generously season all sides of the pork with the salt, pepper, paprika, garlic powder, onion powder, cinnamon and brown sugar. I seasoned my pork butt and refrigerated it over night to let the flavor sink in (I recommend if you have the time)
  1. Drizzle a tablespoon of olive oil in the bottom of the crock pot
  2. Place the seasoned pork in the crockpot
  3. Drizzle ¼ cup of BBQ sauce over the pork
  4. Pour the can of Root beer over the pork butt and let cook for 6-8 hours. The meat will begin to fall apart once you stick a fork through it.
  5. Remove the pork and place on a cookie sheet and let cool 5 minutes
  6. Take two forks or meat shredders if you have them and pull the pork apart. Serve on a bun or sweet potato toast!  Sweet Potato Avocado Toast
