I Think The Technical Term Is 'Marinade'...

Awhile back I bought one of those Traeger BBQ's that does the wood pellets. In one of their ads, the founder of the company is shown booting a beat up old gas BBQ out to the garbage. I am about to do the same thing to the Traeger BBQ. That thing has been a POS from day one and now it's gone dead and I can't be bothered to fix it. I am going back to wood in the firepit and charcoal in the Barbie - and that is that for that.

I've heard of people using pop for a marinade but have never tried it myself. Might have to fix that this year.


  1. I've never used pop for a marinade as such, but I have used it in a crock pot. It works pretty well, but keep in mind that there isn't much of anything you can do to improve a cheap, tough roast.

    Anyway, here's the recipe:

    Bachelor Roast

    (Inexpensive Roast)

    1 medium roast (any size, even the cheap, tough cuts)
    1 can coca-cola
    1 16 oz. bottle of ketchup (generic, or whatever is on sale)

    Put all ingredients in crockpot and cook it for several hours until the meat falls apart and your house smells great! The coke will break down the tough fibers in the meat, so even the toughest comes out tender and tasty. This recipe is good enough to serve to the best company, and leftovers (if you have any) make good BBQ sandwiches.

    Note: Cook it on LOW for 6 - 8 hours. It isn't as good as advertised, but it's cheap and easy to fix.

    1. Yep - I think ya gotta mix it. I remember 100 years ago a fella I knew did a ham at a company BBQ and good lord - there was nothing left over! Even the women ate like pigs because it was so good.
