Having had a NB Silver Smoker for many moons and several campfires, the Hondo and NBBD were also brothers from back in the day. Hondo and NBBD may have been a tad bigger and if memory serves, the Hondo had a flat top on the firebox to heat water etc.
As long as they are the thicker ones (pre charbroil), you can't go wrong with any of the three.
Good luck and enjoy.
