What make and model smoker are you using?


Have you tested your thermometer in boiling water? Should read 212°F


What is the air temperature in the smoker?


Is the 190° the meats internal temperature?


Is long as you keep the meat over 140° it is not ruined


Any pork with an internal temperature has been over 160 is eatable.

If it has not been Injected and you are satisfied with the amount of smoke it got, 4 hours +/-, finish it in the Oven. You can add some Apple Juice, Cola or other liquid you like, cover with foil and in a couple of hours at 325°F, you should be good to go. You want the Bone to pull easily and clean and an IT of around 205°F...JJ
