Vinegar in a brine?

What is the purpose of vinegar in a brine?

My favorite thing to grill / smoke these days are fresh 5 pound bone-in turkey breasts. You get more meat than from Chicken breasts, it's inexpensive, and it's the start of a delicious sandwich.

My basic brine (from generalizing the most popular brine recipes I've seen:

Ratios: 1 gallon water :: 1 cup KOSHER salt :: 1 cup sugar + whatever other seasonings
aka
Ratios: 16 cups water :: 1 cup KOSHER salt :: 1 cup sugar + whatever other seasonings

I've seen a couple recipes that use Apple Cider vinegar in the brine.

How would that change the end result?
