Help with Rootbeer Pulled Pork/Seasoning

BuffaloWing91 | Nov 23, 201607:38 AM    

Happy Holidays all,

So I'm doing pulled pork in a crock pot. I love preparing pork this way and always use a dry rub with little or no liquid added to CP... however roommates want some rootbeer in there for cooking process. I'm a proponent of a good dry rub and a lot of it, so my question is:

1) how much flavor is really imparted by the rootbeer?
2) do I need to avoid any seasonings in my dry rub because of the interplay with a "rootbeer" taste? (i.e garlic, onion powder, etc)

Thanks in advance, new to cooking with soda lol.
