How far in do you put the probe?

    The probes on most thermometers are quite long, and on some meat, it would even poke out the other side if I pushed it all the way in. That said, I think leaving part of the probe exposed would give an incorrect reading. So, how is the best way to place the probe?

    The end of the probe is where it reads the temp so you want the end in the middle of the thickest part.

    And since probe location is a bit of an un-exact art, moving the probe for a confirming reading is always a good idea.
