The internal temp is really irrelevant, but based on what I read above, you probed at 190 and they weren't ready. At 195 you wiggled the bone, but didn't probe. When you did probe again at 200 they were over cooked. So, sometime between 190 and 200 they were done, but since you didn't probe you missed it.
