When probing a brisket, do you probe vertically or horizontally in the thickest part of the flat?

I have always probed vertically, but cooking 11 briskets over last couple days just got me to thinking.:icon_blush:

Is this going to put me in the penalty box?:laugh:

Should this be in the wood shed? :mrgreen:

More than likely, diagonally. I do like to vary the angle to get the best sense of feel

Vertical. Seems like the sweet spot would be easier to reach from the top.
