Pulled Pork Sandwiches

This is my kind of recipe. Just a few ingredients, easy to prepare, and really tasty! I had this tonight, along with my baked beans recipe. The world seems brighter after such a delicious meal! (I adapted this recipe from allrecipes.com)

1 5-pound pork roast (shoulder or butt)
Salt and pepper
2 (12 fluid ounce) cans root beer
1 28-ounce bottle barbecue sauce (you can use your favorite; I used Sweet Baby Ray's Hickory and Brown Sugar Barbecue Sauce)
1/4 teaspoon garlic salt
1 teaspoon dried minced onion
Hamburger buns, lightly toasted

Season with salt and pepper and place pork roast in a crockpot; pour root beer over the meat. Cover and cook on low until well cooked and the pork shreds easily, 6 to 7 hours (the actual length of time may vary according to individual slow cooker). Drain well. Remove pork from the crockpot, take out any fat or bone, shred, then return to slow cooker. Stir in barbecue sauce, garlic salt, and onion. Add a little water, if necessary, to add moisture. Cook for an additional 30 minutes. Serve over hamburger buns. (Not sure how many this serves. I'd guess that it makes enough for about 20 sandwiches. But you can use a larger pork roast, if need be.)
