Once you get the well and try it into a few fittings you will see how restrictive it could be in a fitting that is 'just big enough'.

The well size is determined by your probe, it must fit snug. Also you should get some kind of gook with the well, it helps the heat transfer. It isn't critical but it makes it more accurate and responds quicker as the heat transfer is optimized.

You will have to go an inch or two beyond the TEE, as the probe well is probably deeper than the TEE is wide.
