The only thing that would go for making the end result taste different is that the PBC cooks hotter and faster than a UDS. All the other variables like, charcoal brand, type of wood, and how seasoned your cooker is will make try to determine a clear difference pretty tough. My Ribs taste (a little) different if I use my coleman rather than my offset.
