    Was thinking about covering this after 2 hrs of smoke and let it go till it falls apart. I usually pull at 150 or so and slice. How high can I let it go to not be dried out. Thanks.

    It won't fall apart unless you cook it for a very long time - by then your vegs will be a mess.

    Most people here pull loin at 145. It will be juicy, pink and will taste great.

    Pork loin is  not a really good choice to cook to higher temps, it has too little fat.

    Better to cook to 145 & slice as said above.

    The National Pork Board recommends cooking pork chops, roasts, and tenderloin to an internal temperature between 145° F. (medium rare) and 160° F. (medium), followed by a 3 minute rest. Since large cuts increase approximately 10° F. while resting, remove them from the heat at 150° F. followed by a 10 minute rest.
