Your description of the difference is correct. All it is, is a 30gal UDS with rebar and hooks. The PBC or Pit Barrel Cooker part of it is just the brand name. Yeah sure its a little different than a UDS because of the preset intake, but bare bones wise they are "almost" the same.
With that said, can it be changed to behave differently and achieve lower temps? Yes but that requires tweaking. The marketing strategy behind the PBC was to be 100% set and forget with no tweaking needed...which is bad for most of us on here because we are so OCD about temps and cook times. The average consumer isn't. Hopefully that helps you out a bit.. :)
