There are lots of fancy, expensive grills out there. But where will they be 25, 50, or 100 years from now? Let’s just hope they get responsibly recycled.
On the other hand, you can try, but you can’t ruin a Cauldron in a single lifetime. It’s impossible.
This is Mike Bertelsen, the founder of Cowboy Cauldron Company, and I know, because there are two people in this world who have tried. The first one is my brother Steve. He’s broken everything I have ever owned since he was old enough to walk, and his Cauldron is still standing, ten years later. Believe me – that means durability.
The other guy is my friend Dennis. He lives on an island in the Chesapeake Bay, and he uses his Cauldron all the damn time. He loves nothing more than to host a big party around his Urban Cowboy, and then, when the party is over, throw the basin, raging coals and all, right into the Bay. Does it piss me off? Hell yes! But does it hurt his Cauldron? No.
CAVEAT: Please don’t throw your Cauldron in the water. It’s a liability nightmare. And it pisses me off!
A Cauldron is made from solid, seamless, high-tensile plate steel. All parts are treated with high-performance high-temperature powder coating, and each component has been tested to perform its duty perfectly. You can buy other grills, but you simply can’t buy a better one. You can sit around other fire pits, but after spending time around a Cauldron, they will honestly seem rather barbaric.
