Verge Video's YouTube export settings

Alright Verge Video team, you manage to have the highest quality and bit rate of any running YouTube videos. I understand the team uses Premier Pro to edit and export video, so what's your upload settings for YouTube?

I usually stick with the Premier Pro YouTube 1080p 29.97 Preset, but my videos continue to look of a lower bit rate compared to your videos after uploading.

Screen shots or detailed descriptions would be awesome!
