Root Beer Pulled Pork

After some encouragement from a friend, I'm going to get back to posting recipes.  There have been a few good ones recently so expect more posts.

Here's one I found through this same friend.  It's crazy easy & crazy good!  You can see the original recipe here but I'm going to post how I did it.

Pork tenderloin (2 lbs.)
Garlic salt (to taste)
Pepper (to taste)
12 oz. root beer
Bottle of bbq sauce
Hamburger buns

Rub tenderloin with garlic salt & pepper.  Place in crockpot.  Stab with a fork a few times.  Pour in root beer.  Cook on low for 5 hours. 

Remove tenderloin & shred.  Pour out root beer.  Put pork back in & pour bbq sace on top & mix.  Continuing cooking on low for an hour.  Serve on buns.

Oh my goodness!  I can't believe how good this was!  I tasted the pork before mixing it with the bbq sauce & it was good just like that, though it definitely tasted like it was cooked in root beer.  I'll definitely be making this again & try it with different bbq sauces.
