Why do you use cheesecloth on turkey?
December 25, 2010 3:57PM
A cheesecloth soaked in butter and wine will keep the turkey moist. I also put a butter/herb mix under the turkey skin. You will find that there is less basting and it also turns out a wonderful color. Remove cloth for the last 30 min or so.

Can you substitute gauze for cheesecloth for your turkey?
yes. though gauze isn't as fine as cheesecloth, it would work for applications where a fine weave isn't necessary, such as bandaging and dressing a wound, or, possibly, a turkey. except for vaseline gauze, gauze usually is not infused with any chemicals, even to confer anti-microbial properties. rather, after packaging, the packaged unit is sterilized by irradiation.
