Pulled Pork

I've always wondered what the "novelty" was of a pulled pork sandwich. I've seen them in concession stands at football games, with people waiting in long lines to get one...I've seen them served at fundraising dinners, at family parties and at church banquets...just about everywhere. I've always thought of them as a "sloppy joe" made with pork...and have always wondered what was so "special" about them. My hubby likes to go to the BYU games with is dad and he said that he eats these sandwiches there all the time and he loves them...so after debating as to what to put on my weekly menu, I thought I would find a recipe for Pulled Pork Sandwiches and see what kind of reaction I would get from my family. As the aroma permeated the house...I came to the conclusion that THIS was NO ordinary "sloppy joe made with pork" kind of sandwich...it was defiantly something different, something that was making my mouth water as it cooked and defiantly a sandwich to stand in a long line to get! Needless to say, dinner was a hit. There were a lot of "mmmmm's" and "this is really good" kind of sounds coming from the mouths of my kids and hubby...guess they liked it! It's such an easy recipe to make and the sandwich tasted scrumptious...it will defiantly be something that I make again and again...and again! Make it for your family tonight and you might get a huge round of applause!!!

Pulled Pork Sandwiches
2-3 lb pork sirloin roast
1 (12 oz) bottle of root beer
1 or more bottles of Famous Daves Barbecue Sauce
8 hamburger buns

Place pork roast in a crock pot; pour the root beer over the meat. Cover and cook on low until well cooked and the pork will shred easily (mine took about 6-7 hours). Remove meat from the pot and shred it using 2 forks to pull the meat apart (hence the reason its called "pulled pork" I guess) Drain all liquid from the crock pot and place shredded meat back into cooker. Pour 1 bottle (or more if you like yours a little more saucy) of Famous Daves Barbecue Sauce over shredded meat. Cook for at least 1 more hour on the lowest setting of your crock pot (mine is "warm") or until you are ready to eat...I let mine cook for 4 more hours, just stirring it frequently. Serve on hamburger buns.

IT'S THAT EASY! WOW...I would have thought for something that good it would have been a lot harder!!!

*PS...hubby says they taste just like the ones he stands in line to get at the BYU football games..woo hoo!
