In 2011, the USDA changed the guidelines for a safe cooking temperature of pork to be 145. That’s for roasts and thick cuts and includes a resting period of around 3-5 minutes. Ground pork is still at 160 degrees.

As meat rests off the grill/smoker, it has “Carry Over” which means it’s still cooking and will rise slightly in temperature, So 160 will do. I’m very FOOD safety conscientious (paranoid), so I personally take my fatties to 165 in the center, and then rest for around 10 minutes before slicing or serving.
