I center between the fat cap and the blade bone, keeping the probe centered in the meat away from the bone.

An inch from the bone if there is one present. Also if the probe goes in easy you are probably in a fat pocket.
The probe will be fine if it goes into the muscle meat. It should go in fairly hard.

Thanks guys, this is one of those things that's hard to explain and hard to visualize.
