Default Pork Shoulder HELP

Good Morning Everyone!

So grabbed a nice 12 pound shoulder and threw it on the egg at 9:30 PM last night. When I went to bed it was around 1230 there and we were riding around 250. Woke up at around 530 AM this morning and temperature in egg dropped down to 170-190. The internal temperature on the butt was 149.

I am probably worried about nothing but just wanted to ask the experts if that was ok and safe to eat. I've never done a whole shoulder just smaller buts - after 8 hours an internal temp at 149 sounds about right with a 12 pound butt.

Any thoughts?
