I don't know where you are getting your info, but you should hang here for a while. @190, the butt may be close, but it aint ready. Spritzing a butt is a waste of time and energy IMO. Let it rock and roll. Every piggie is gonna cook up differenly, when the bone wiggles free and wants to fall out is what you're looking for. May happen at 195, may not happen till 210. Temp is just an indicator for when to start checking for "done".

I have a pretty good idea of where you've been reading, but won't comment on which site it is.
