@Grivusangel -- I use a digital thermometer, too. My dream meat thermometer is the kind with the probe that you leave in the meat, and it's attached to the readout monitor with a cable. The monitor has a magnet on it that attaches it to the outside of the oven. You set the thermometer for the desired internal temperature, and it alerts you when that temperature is reached. I saw one on one of the TV chef shows and I've wanted one ever since.
They run about $25, so I'll need to save some change to get one, but that's one kitchen gadget I really, really want!
