  • 4 lbs. pork riblets
  • 3 cups root beer enough to cover the meat in the crockpot
  • 1 bottle Sweet Baby Ray's BBQ Sauce
  • hamburger buns or kaiser rolls


  • Cover the pork with root beer and cook it in the crockpot for about
  • HIGH for 4 Hours
  • MEDIUM for 6 Hours
  • LOW for 10 Hours. (Best choice)
  • Shred the pork and add the barbecue sauce.
  • Serve warm on the rolls.


Tips:The slower you cook the pork the more tender it becomes and will flake with a turn of your fork.The root beer adds a deeper flavor to the pork. The sugar cooks away, much like when you add alcohol or wine to your recipes.
