I'm about to make some :)

The roast is frozen though. Do I need to thaw if first or can I put it in the crock pot still frozen? I don't plan to eat it tonight, but for tomorrow's lunch/dinner.

You can put in in frozen, just cook it on low for the whole time.

If you put it strait into the crock pot frozen remember that it will add extra water/liquid to it.

Have you made it wit the soda before? Usually when I make it I just cook the pork in water. I full the crock pot all the way up so the roast is fully covered. The recipe I'm usin just calls for one can of soda an it doesn't fully cover the roast. Will that matter?

I figured it might. I drain it before I add BBQ sauce so that shouldn't be a problem.

Mmm orange. Lol. I've not heard if it made with that. Just root beer and dr pepper. I was going to use dr pepper and then use dr pepper BBQ sauce but our grocery store didn't have any.

Sounds delicious! Would soda work for pork ribs as well?

I'd just go ahead and follow the recipe as is, the fact that its frozen will cause extra liquid already.
