New thermometer from ThermoWorks (ChefAlarm) has an optional needle probe that's perfect for comp chicken. You can leave the probe in the meat while it cooks and it won't leave a gapping hole. $59 bucks at ThermoWorks, and the probe is $15. It comes with a Hi-Temp probe that's thicker, and not as good for chicken. But the smaller probe is perfect.
I like it...looks about the same diameter as a thermopen

Actually, it is much smaller diameter than thermapen. Ordered one when they came out and really like the ProSeries probe. A little delicate. You have to be more careful with this probe than say a Maverick.

Thanks for sharing. I like my Mavericks but continue to look for things that don't leave "gaping holes."
