We've seen what poor intake and exhaust can do on any type pit if not balanced correctly.
I find that the exhaust does a nice job of keeping the temp regulated. The rebar really does cut down the air flow to a point that keeps the grease dripping onto the fire from flaring up. Just like any UDS though, as soon as you take that lid off and oxygen surges in, flare ups start within 10 seconds or so.

On a full load of Kindle briquettes (off brand made by RO) mine went a usable 10 hours. After that the temp dropped below ~210 at the rebar. That only happened once so far and on average it will run about 8 to 9 hours normally.

I will admit though, I would never do a brisket on my PBC. If I was going to do one I would use the UDS. Just my personal preference and I wouldn't want to cook a brisket that fast anyhow. I'd go low n' slow for sure.
