    I am making this now but I have a question:
    #5 it says “strain the juice” do you discard the juice or put in back in crock pot ?
    Thanks it looks really good can’t wait to eat it.

    I was wondering if since you strain the juice/root beer out if it really matters how large or small the chunk of pork is and if it matters how much root beer is used? :)
