In 2009 the USDA Food Safety Code was changed to 41 F to 134 F in under 4 hours for meats that don't meet the intact muscle rule. What temp was the meat when you put it in the smoker? If 5 hours it was 139 I would guess that you were very close or past the 134 mark at 4 hours. 

Did you inject the meat? Did you put the temp probe in right at the beginning of the smoke?

If I am doing large pork butts (8 lbs and above) I usually set the smoker at 250º to start with, once I get the internal temp up to 130º, I will lower it back to 225º.
