Butter substitute on a turkey?

chefMolnar | Nov 16, 2011 12:19 PM

For Thanksgiving I'm looking at one of those recipes that involve placing a big piece of cheesecloth soaked in butter (and apple cider) on top of the bird to keep it moist. But I'd rather not use butter. Would something like Earth Balance work as a substitute or is it not worth doing if I don't use butter? Any other ideas for a substitute?
