The USDA recently lowered the recommended safe cooking temperature of pork to 145ºF145°F (60°C), from the long-time standard of 160ºF160°F (70°C). However, this really applies more to lean cuts like loin - for a bigger cut like your shoulder, 165-180ºF180°F (75-80°C) is probably a safer bet.

Cooking at that temperature for 24 hours should give you no problems; do test it with a probe thermometer to make sure it is the right temperature all the way through.

190ºF190°F (90°C) would have been slight overkill even before the change, and 275ºF275°F (135°C) is just crazy.
