165˚ at a minimum. That's not my opinion, it's a hard and fast safety rule. As for wood, a mixture of hickory and cherry works well. Since a fatty only smokes for a couple hours, the stronger flavor of hickory will stand out more, and the sweetness of the cherry is a nice complement to it. It'll also help with the smoke ring.
