Recipe: Emeril Lagasse’s Fastest BBQ Brisket

Growing up, my mom would pull her pressure cooker out from the basement several times a year. This was good news, because it meant she was making one of two things: stuffed artichokes, or Yankee Pot Roast. We also had a slow cooker, but it was infrequently used–I don’t think my parents had the recipes or ideas to take advantage of the appliance, and it mostly hibernated in a closet in the basement. The small kitchen electrical appliance that got the most use was my dad’s griddle. He’d use it nearly every weekend for pancakes. When I first lived on my own, it took me years to master a perfectly cooked pancake made in a frying pan over an open flame (that’s how well-trained I was on the electric griddle).

If you’ve recently bought a small appliance for your kitchen, no doubt your intention is to use it the way my family  used that pancake griddle–to the max. No one wants a new deep fryer or multi cooker to languish in the basement because of lack of recipes or ideas.

Leave it to Emeril Lagasse to have the recipes, and the ideas, so that we can go on about our business cooking with  our shiny new kitchen toys.  Emeril’s Cooking with Power: 100 Delicious Recipes Starring Your Slow Cooker, Multi Cooker, Pressure Cooker, and Deep Fryer is on sale October 22, 2013, and is full of dishes that will satisfy every craving, for nearly every occasion. Even though you have to wait another month before getting your hands on this brilliant cookbook in its entirety, here’s a sneak peek at an early recipe. It’s a crowd-pleaser: Emeril’s Fastest BBQ Brisket.  I might even send this recipe over to my mom, and add a third recipe to her pressure cooker repertoire.
