Default Perfect Probe for Comp Chicken

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.

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."
