I would not worry, especially if you notice its much windier today than yesterday. Just let the baby go. Try not to peek! :)

cooking at 200-255.  big range due to gusty winds

wind and cold will suck the heat out of your smoker, even with the door closed, try and build a wind break around each chunk of meat has a mind of its own, some will have a major stall others will glide right thru it while patient, it will be fine

Unless you injected it, inserted the probe too soon, or otherwise modified the structure of the "intact muscle", you should be fine.


Good luck and good smoking.
