Boston Butt Recipe

Root Beer Crock Pot Pulled Pork

The end result is something you can either just simply serve on a hamburger bun as a sandwich or you can serve it with tortillas for tacos.  You decide.  This one of those recipes that whenever have taken it to a pot luck, party or just served it at home has drawn raves from people.  Best part is you can set it up in the morning and just leave it go all day.

This recipe is a good alternative for those that don’t have a smoker to make barbeque pork in perhaps because they can’t have one due to their living arrangements.
