1 full size pan
1 cup apple cider vinegar
1/2 cup Bristot or Danesi espresso

12 large fresh thyme sprigs
2 tsp salt and pepper
2 1/2 cups brown sugar
2 cups water
Make the coffee glaze; In a large stockpot, add all ingredients above and bring to a boil. Increase boiling to make glaze a thicker consistency. Let glaze come to room temperature and prepare to baste.
Baste turkey and begin roasting, basting every 30 minutes. Continue smoking, basting every 15 minutes until bird reaches 165° F with thermometer inserted into the thickest part of the turkey.
