    I usually put mine is so that the tip or about 1 inch on the end of the probe is located in the center of whatever I am cooking. This usually does leave quite a bit sticking out.

    The tip of the meat probe thermometer should be in the center of the thickest part of most meats.

    How far in it appears, would depend on the thickness of the meat, and the length of the probe.

    I'm hoping I understood your question.

    Also, you do want to make sure the tip is not touching bone or it will throw off your temps.

    The end of the thermometer or the last inch is where the sensor is so that part needs to be in the center of the meat.
