One More Pork Question

My intention is to take the pork out of the egg and into a warmed cooler about 3 - 4 hours prior to dinner tonight. I have seen posts to take the pork out at 195 and I have read the pork should be taken out at 175. What temp should I put the pork into the cooler for a pull later. Currently the 8.5 lb. pork is reading 165 internal after 13 hr.s of wind and rain outside. Grate temp is 230 and dome 280.[p]Thanks
Everyday is Saturday and tomorrow is always Sunday.

    Retired RailRoader,[p]I go to 195°F and then wrap in foil and throw into a cooler. No need for it to be heated. That pork will get just cool enough so that you can stand pulling it.[p]Mark G

    Mark G, I do that same thing but I let mine get up to 205 9when I can - I have pulled it at 195 an dthere was nothing wrong with it). One thing for sure, wrapped in foil, then in towels and placed in a cooler, it will still be plenty warm in 3-4 hours.

    Retired RailRoader,
    i can't imagine a post for PULLED pork saying to remove it at 175... thats ok for chopped pork, but it won't pull 100% at 175 (some parts of it will, like the dark meat end opposite the bone end).
    so, for the record, 195 is what you want. wait 30 minutes (resting time) before you pull it or up to many hours if you've put it in a warmer.[p]jaymer...
