Right. My instant read doesn't have a hole like that.

OK , your talking about a thermocouple thermometer which is a little different.

  • A thermocouple does not measure absolute temperature, but rather the difference in temperature between two points. When one end of a conductor, such as a metal strip, is hotter than the other, it creates a voltage between the two ends. The greater the temperature difference, the greater the current. Different metals react at different rates, and a thermocouple actually makes use of two metals, joined at the sensor end. At the circuitry end, they are attached to a meter that uses the difference in voltages between the metals to calculate the temperature

Andy, thank you for clarifying that for me. I did not know coil sensors were that responsive.

Testing the probe as described is a good idea also said Andy M.
