I agree with you there but I am not sure if the intention of basting is to have a juicier bird. I may be totally wrong but I always thought that basting was meant to help with crisping the skin?
As far as the cheesecloth, I have been reading up on that and it seems most people use it with the skin still on in order to help crisp the skin while not overbrowning it.
