root beer pulled pork

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 

OK so I have been gone a while for work and finally back home to the smoker. while I was gone I went to Kinetic brewing Co. in California and had root beer pulled pork and it was awesome!!! I want to try to make my own.  after searching on-line my idea is to put the pork in a foil pan that is 3/4 the depth of the meat then fill 1/2 with root beer the whole time its in the smoker. just one question will the root beer will it boil/ burn. the soaking in root beer is based on a lot of slow cooker recipes that I have found online but my biggest concern is burning  the root beer what is everyone's thoughts

It shouldn't burn if you keep adding more if it evaporates. But if its in a pan you shouldn't have a problem. You can also reduce some root beer down to a syrup on the stovetop and use that to mop to get more flavor as well I would imagine!

Make sure you post some Q-View!

never heard of it...interested in seeing what comes of this...youd think if you were worried about burning because its syrupy or what ever youd just add a little water to it. idk..waiting on others to chime in..

I'm doing something similar to this over the coming weekend, but I'm going to reduce the root beer down to almost a syrup as mentioned above and inject some with apple juice and some rub, then mop periodically with the remaining root beer.


I have absolutely no idea if it will be any good, but I can't imagine it won't be...
