NEW turkey brining question! Any experts on-line?

I'm a flexitarian. I only eat meat once a week that's been sustainably and humanely raised. I bought a beautiful 16 lb. turkey at a huge price for our Canadian Thanksgiving this weekend but now I have less people coming for dinner. I thought it was a brilliant idea to have a butcher saw the frozen bird in half. So now, I have an 8 lb. half turkey to cook tomorrow. My question is: can I or should I brine it with all that exposed flesh?
