I do not like root beer is there something to replace it with? How hot is this? I have never cooked with chipotle peppers. Thanks, Brandy

This is a lot of steps and ingredients. I just bought the Crock Pot brand of pulled pork seasoning mix and it was possibly the best pulled pork I’ve ever made. Super-easy.
