  1. These sound delicious! I've used Cola for slow-cooker pork, but root beer sounds amazing! I can't wait to try this:)

  2. Does the Root beer make it super sweet? If so, is there any other substitute you'd recommend in it's place? Does the fizz help to break down the meat? What about selzer water with no flavor? I love my slow cooker, but don't like sweet too much! Thanks
