Sorry I forgot to anser your second question.
I believe it will read the target. I was
doing the same with the roast in our oven,
was able to measure the temp difference between
the meat and metalwork inside the oven through
the glass door.

Think of it like a light meter, if you point
it at a bright light source inside a glass,
or inside a lesser "glow", it will measure the
most intense light.
