130F with a rest (covered) should be hot enough.

Ground beef really should be cooked to 155 degrees.

Ground beef needs to be cooked to a higher temperature than other beef. Firstly because of its higher fat consistency and closer texture (denser). Secondly because unlike an integral cut of meat, ground beef has been exposed to more bacteria.
If you take it slowly it will not be dry!

Same as with any beef recipe ... 125-130 will be medium rare, 150-165 will be well done.
