    I start checking mine at 195. 195 to 205 is the range I like.

    190-205, I like pull at 205 and call it a day. 
    Be careful, man! I've got a beverage here.
  • Yep-what outlaw said.

  • I start probe checking at 195 until 205.  Once the probe slides in with no resistance, it is time for the wrap and rest for me.
