Does my turkey need to be completely covered by the brine? Is it OK if the top part is not covered?
Are you channeling your best self with this comment? (If you're not sure, check out our Code of Conduct.)
If you don't have a container big enough (or not enough brine), it should be okay if you're rotating the bird every now and then. Ideal is completely covered, but this is a decent workaround!

Covering it completely is a good idea, but if you don't want to dilute the brine (adding a cup or two of water is probably not going to make that much difference), just flip the bird over a few times and whatever else you do, please don't worry about it. ;o)
