on this meter it said do not touch the probe to metal. does that mean just the end part or the entire thing. The reason I am asking is I put the probe in the meat and it is sticking out enough that the top of it is in contact with my aluminum pan cover which is also touching the metal smoker itself thus making metal contact is this bad will it fry my probe. Never would have thought so many quesitons would arise. thanks for the help guys and gals.
