  1. Any idea if you can make this with diet rootbeer? I only have diet in the house, but would love to try it sometime.

  2. please email response if possible…I am always confused by this…do I put ingredients in bag assembled but raw to freeze or do i cook first, cool and assemble and then cook in crockpot again?

  3. Thanks for the clarification. I had assumed that you cooked the pork and put the pulled pork with sauce into the freezer. That way – nothing to cook when you pulled it out!

    1. Christine you could find a more natural root beer such as Boylan’s, Zevia or Blue Sky. Look for as little ingredients as possible.
