Lou Lambert's Coffee-Rubbed Brisket

Ever tried cooking with coffee? Chef Lou Lambert of Lamberts Downtown Barbecue in Austin, Texas, uses cofffee in one of his signature dishes. In this week’s encore presentation, he has adapted the recipe for his famous smoked, coffee-rubbed brisket for the home kitchen by roasting the brisket rather than smoking it. Easy to assemble and cook, this brisket packs amazing flavor and can be served warm or at room temperature. Get the Recipe: Lou Lambert's Coffee-Rubbed Brisket

Could someone tell me how to adapt this recipe to a slow cooker? I would love to serve this along with my Thanksgiving turkey but I only have one oven.
