Beer BBQ'd Pulled Pork

One of the first recipes I posted on this blog was for pulled pork. I got the recipe from Big City Cooking and my husband and I absolutely loved it. The rootbeer gave the pork a really nice taste.

Now that I have been cooking more and more these past couple months, I decided to put a twist on that recipe. We had some extra beer hanging around the refrigerator, so I thought I would give this a try.

instead of root beer, I used a bottle of this:

This ended up being much more delicious than I could have imagined. The beer really permeated the pork and made it really moist. Even after mixing it with the BBQ sauce, the pork retained a slight flavor of the beer, which mixed well with the taste of the BBQ sauce. A+!
