We do not recommend letting the cord to the probe bend in the grill cover. Typically it would be recommended to insert the probe cord through a vent in the grill rather than letting the grill cover close and possibly damaging the cord. If you have any other questions, please contact the AcuRite Support Team via Live Chat, we are happy to assist you. Thank you.
