Temperature is not a good way to determine doneness. You want to go by probe tenderness and the looseness of the bone.
I probed it with a skewer and it went in like butter. I then wiggled the bone and it came out. I checked it with my digital probe thermometer and The IT was 198. I then rewrapped in parchment and let rest in a cooler. When I unwrapped it it was 200. Perhaps I should not have let it rest for so long ( 2+ hrs? ).
