Yes, the long thermometer is removable. I wrapped a little bit of silicone tape on the probe where it meets the back of the dial so that it stays snug when inserted into the fitting. It just pulls out. The other thermo doesn't get in the way.
My drums are not stainless, just raw untainted steel. Thanks for looking!
