  1. This looks wonderful! It's been years since I've made pulled pork, and I think you've inspired me to put it on the menu again~

  2. I never heard of adding ginger ale to the crock pot... I am looking forward to trying this recipe soon!

  3. Oh boy - this sounds so good. I'm really craving one now!!

  4. Pulled pork is one of my husband's most requested meals.... I always make the same thing though. This looks like a nice diversion!!!

  5. Pulled pork is a bit of an alien concept on my small island but I've tried it a few times now and am sold!

    Will have to try your version with ginger ale and bbq sauce - sounds delicious.

  6. I wish I had a 3 day weekend! And I also wish I had one of these sandwiches in my hands right now!

  7. I've heard of using cola, but not ginger ale . . . will definitely be giving it a go. Love pulled pork! Thanks for sharing this new one!

  8. Interesting title! This recipe will certainly come in handy :)

  9. Neat recipe....unexpected use of ginger ale. ;) The sandwiches look so good.

  10. I came full circle after looking at this ingredient list. My first reaction was, "no way." After thinking about it, ginger ale is a perfect ingredient for pork. I love pork and ginger. How fantastic it would be. I'm in!

  11. Pulled pork is the perfect slow-cooking winter dish, warm and spicy. It is great dish for a party or big meal. The recipe is so easy to prepare. Thanks a lot for informing us about this amazing sandwich.
