I also do it the same way in the crock pot with either Root Beer or Dr. Pepper. We add a sliced onion during cooking and remove it before pulling the pork. This is the easiest and tastiest pulled pork. We just put the pork on a half sheet pan and remove all the fat before pulling. Don't forget the cole slaw!

I put a pork tenderloin in the crockpot and cover it with root beer. Cook for 6 hours. Pour off the root beer and pull apart the meat with two forks. Put it back in still hot crock pot and add your favorite barbeque sauce (Sweet Baby Rays is the favorite here). You can serve immediately or heat it up for about 20 minutes.
Sometimes I agree with my DH just to see the look of confusion, anxiety and then fear come across his face!
I put the pork roast in the crockpot, fat side up, and sprinkle with some spices. Pour beef broth over it and cook on low all night.
In the morning I take roast out and shred it, leave all but about a cup of the broth, put shredded pork back in crock pot and add bbq sauce. If I have an onion I'll cut that up and add with the sauce also. I simmer that all day on low.

My recipe is stupid easy and absolutely delicious... at least we and our guests think so:
5-6 lb pork butt 1-1/2 T sea or Hawaiian salt 1 to 1-1/2 T liquid smoke
(1/2 or 1 cup water, or other liquid)
score/pierce meat, rub with salt and smoke, add liquid around, cook in crockpot for 10-14 hrs on low, turning once - shred, add drippings for moisture if needed, serve over rice or on buns w/your favorite bbq sauce. (we use Sweet Baby Ray's)

The way I do it is extremely similar to several others. I sprinkle the meat with Lawry's Seasoned Salt before adding the soda (usually Dr. Pepper--and I normally am not a fan of Dr. Pepper at all--or Root Beer). My sauce of choice is Kraft Hickory BBQ sauce.
I have to agree with Marianne's Kalua Pork recipe!! This is the only way I make pulled pork. It's perfect because it is super tasty as is for those who don't like BBQ sauce and those who do like sauce can use their favorite kind. Win-win for everybody and it turns out perfect every time!
Put the pork in the crockpot with a can of root beer. Salt and pepper the pork first. Cook until fork tender. Drain the juice add BBQ sauce and you're done. It's super yummy
I do it this way too. When it's done, I shred it and put it in a casserole dish with bbq sauce and heat in the oven for 20 minutes or so. Warms up the sauce and gives you a few crisp edges to it. Craving pulled pork now!
