Trouble with the Thermapen Thermometer

Hey SE Community!

While making Chicken Adobo the other night, I was having trouble getting an accurate reading from my Thermapen thermometer. I didn't know where to stick it, or how far to stick it, and eventually gave up and cut into the meat. This isn't the first time this has happened either. Occasionally I'll be taking the temp of a cut of meat only to find out that it's gotten colder!

Does anyone else have trouble using the Thermapen?
