Root Beer Pulled Pork Sandwiches

Another fantastic recipe from Jenni at I love the moist flavor the root beer gave the pork and I liked how easy this meal came together on a busy day when I didn't get home until dinner time.

2, 2 lb pork picnic roasts (or a 4 lb pork butt/shoulder roast)
1 cans root beer
1 bottle of your favorite barbecue sauce, plus more for serving
hamburger buns or homemade rolls

Place pork roasts in slow cooker (Jenni uses picnic roasts, which are small pork shoulder roasts because they are easier to shred at the end). Pour root beer over the roasts. Cover and cook on low for 7-8 hours. Remove pork and discard liquid in slow cooker. Shred pork, removing fatty pieces, and return to slow cooker. Add barbecue sauce, using about 3/4 of the bottle. Toss pork with sauce to coat. Fill hamburger buns with pork and top with more barbecue sauce.
