the pbc holds rock steady temps b/c you put the exact same amount of the exact same charcoal in each time in a cooker with the exact same preset vents. he drum is also somewhat efficient. Therefore you get the exact same temp held out for an extended period of time. Powder coating and the like might have a little to do with it, but it can't be as big as the previous points.
Also- in regards to Uds's, I havent seen many charcoal baskets that were as beefy as the PBC's. The thing is built to withstand natural disasters.
But, you could probably do the same thing in a wsm if you set the vents in a certain place. However, I would still probably recommend getting a pbc unless you already have a wsm/too much other stuff.
