Well, how I like it and how you like it may differ. For slicing, I go to where a chuck just starts to act a bit tender and then pull and rest before slicing. For butts/shoulders, 185 seems to work well for me. But again, that's where I like them.

You can always take it off, slice a bit and see if it needs a little more time.

For sliced pork I like 175-180. Good stuff!
Never tried it with chuck.
