Default Brew pot / wort chiller

I just got a new brewpot, it has a thermometer mounted on the sidewall 5" from the bottom of the pot the thermometer enters the pot perpendicular to the sidewall and goes in 4". How am I supposed to put my Wort chiller into the pot with the thermometer in the way, anyone else ever have this issue?

Thanks.

Sounds like it's time for a CFC for ya. Use your current wort chiller as a pre-chiller.

It depends on the diameter of your chiller. Most folks that have a drain bulkhead on their kettles use a counterflow chiller so it's not an issue. Another alternative is to get a thermo with only a 2" stem only your readings will not be as accurate.
I'm selling a chiller 11" diameter which would be fine for you if your pot is 15" diameter or more.
