2 questions as a matter of fact. Here goes: Is it important to submerge the bird completely or can it be sticking out a little. I am brining 2 birds in a tub because it fit in the fridge so well. There is a little bit of bird sticking out of the brine. Should I sweat it or are these things like sponges and as long as its in the brine, I'm good. Also, brine breast up or breast down.
