extra soaking a pre-brined turkey?

am planning on getting a pre-brined 12 lb turkey at trader joe's. for more flavor, can i give it another soak in a bucket with cinnamon, orange peel, etc (without the salt)? or will soaking it in spiced water dissolve the salt that is already in there?
also, will adding water to the bottom of the roasting pan while it is cooking make any difference to its moistness/flavor?
any thoughts/tips would be gratefully appreciated, as this is my first time cooking a turkey :)
