    Temp probe when steaming pastrami

    I'm doing a 4.5lb pastrami which I intend to finish by steaming. Not sure about leaving the temp probe in the meat inside a high humidity environment. Could it cause problems with the probe? Any input is appreciated.

    Don't do it, Boss! You don't need the probe in there for steaming, and you could very well damage it.

      BTW, I usually slice then steam what I intend to use right away. I know others have a different approach, but that's what my NYC Mama taught me, and it's never gone wrong.

          My probe's a Maverick 732. I took EDF's asvice and just probed it with a hand held thermometer to get the temp. Seemed to work out fine as the pastrami sammie's were great. Thanks for your help!
