I am cooking Pheasant and used to use Bacon over the breasts to keep them moist during the roast. I need a substitute. Can't be bacon, cured, preserved or smoked meat. Foil won't do. Unsure about my cheesecloth drenched trick that I use on turkey. What are the best options?

butter placed between the skin and the meat, and your cheesecloth trick

Or flip the bird to roast on its breast. Lets the juices run into the breast instead of out.
