Leave them in. They will probably stay at 165 for a while(plateau). Take them off at around 190 to 200. Wrap and cooler for about an hour or two. Unwrap and pull. If you want to serve sliced pork then you can take them off now.

Take out and foil. Put back in smoker.
When temp hits 195 pull out and put in cooler for an hour. Then they are ready to pull when you need them.

yeah, what they said..

165-170 for slicing.

190 for pulling.

1.5 hours per pound at 250 to go to pulling temps.
