    Putting a temp probe in a deer stick as small as they are is tough! I make casingless sticks and I try to insert the probe in a hurry so I don't have the smoker door open any longer than I have to, smoke is rolling out so its hard to see what I'm doing, etc. I always worry that the probe is sticking out the other side of the deer stick or something like that. I put the probe lengthwise into the meat. I worry that I may not be getting an accurate reading. A lot of words here for a small issue! How do you guys do it?

    You need a thermocouple therm like a Thermapen. They can measure quickly in shallow depths...JJ
