  • 1 pork shoulder roast
  • 1 medium onion, chopped
  • 16 fl oz (500 mL) bottled root beer (not diet)
  • 2 cups (500 mL) your favourite BBQ sauce
  • 6 Kaiser or hamburger buns, split and lightly toasted


  1. Place the pork and onion in a slow cooker. Pour the root beer over the pork, cover and cook on LOW until well-cooked and the pork shreds easily, usually 8 – 10 hours (or 4 – 5 hours on HIGH).
  2. Drain well and discard extra root beer. Stir in BBQ sauce.
  3. Serve on buns with coleslaw.
