Slow Cooker Pulled Pork

I've been holding off on posting this recipe simply because I wanted to let the photo on Pulled Pork Sandwiches get you excited for it.  Well, enough with the waiting! Here's the recipe:

2 lb. pork roast (I used a top sirloin roast, but any will work)
1 12-oz. bottle/can root beer (we always use Henry Weinhards)
1 16 oz. bottle BBQ sauce (or make your own - we used Sweet Baby Rays this time, but I like to make our own)

Place roast in a slow cooker and poke holes in it with a fork.  Pour the root beer over the roast, then cover and cook on low for 6-8 hours.  Remove roast and shred.  Drain the slow cooker, add the pork back in and mix with the bottle of bbq sauce and let cook about 30 more minutes, until warm.
