What is the right internal temp for a roast boneless pork shoulder (butt)?

Epicurious recipe says 190F. That seems too high.

It's waaaaaaaaaaaaaaayyyy too high. Even the USDA will tell you 140F these days. But the roast will have to rest tented with foil (or a towel) for 10 to 15 minutes after coming out of the oven. It's no longer "the other white meat".
