Rated as 4.17 out of 5 Stars

"This is a relaxed slow cooker recipe. I've never really measured ingredients out as I've gone, but the end result is absolutely amazing. I never even use BBQ sauce, but you can if you want.

Great recipe all the family enjoyed the meal thanh you

This was really good! Used "Not Your Fathers Ginger Ale". Worked great. Wonderful flavor. Served up on corn tortillas, diced tomatos, sour cream, and cilantro. Yum! Thank you!

This was delicious. I used a pork loin roast for a leaner pulled pork. Smelled wonderful while slow cooking. Like the hint of ginger.
