Recipe Notes

For the pulled pork you can do 1 of 2 things: 1st, use prepared BBQ pulled pork that is in the refrigerated section of your grocery store OR 2nd, use leftover pulled pork. Here's an incredibly easy recipe for BBQ Pulled pork: place 1 (2 pound) pork tenderloin in the crockpot with 1 sliced onion and 2 cloves minced garlic. Cover in 3 cups root beer. Cook on low for 6-8 hours or until it shreds easily. Drain and discard the root beer. Shred the pork and add in the BBQ sauce then place on the foil packet :)
