Made with Pride

Cowboy Cauldrons are a matter of pride for their owners as well as for us. After years in a white-collar world where nothing tangible was ever created, it was a life-changing experience the day someone saw the first Cauldron, walked up to me, and said, “That is the coolest thing I have ever seen. I would like to buy one from you.”

I vowed on that day that if someone was going to buy something from me it was going to be as good as I could make it, and that it would last. It isn’t easy. It requires everything from precision technology to brute force. We are proud of what we do, and we consider it our honor to have your business.


You can try, but you can’t ruin a Cauldron in a single lifetime. It’s impossible. 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.

Our Story

I’m Mike Bertelsen and I am the owner and President of Cowboy Cauldron Company. I didn’t start this business because it seemed like a good idea. In fact, if I were going to give someone career advice, it surely wouldn’t be to start selling fire pits.

Features & Benefits

The Cauldron’s design is timeless. Although it might not look like it at first glance, lots and lots of design revisions have gone into the products we now so proudly sell.

Suspended Basin Design

Heat radiates out and down. Put your feet right under the basin on a cold day! Minimizes smoke irritation by elevating the fire.

Single-Point Suspension

The Cowboy Cauldron sways, just perceptively, when burning. It’s a Cowboy Cauldron. Give it a kick if you want to. You can’t hurt it! Pendulum + Fire = Happiness!

Adjustable Basin Height

Fully adjustable to accommodate any patio furniture or location.

Seamless Plate Steel Basin

Impervious to thermal shock or abuse of almost any kind! No seams to crack, weaken, or look at.

Durable Finish

Frames are zinc-treated, then powder coated for maximum weather resistance. Basins area treated with special high-temperature powder coat.

Large Basin Sizes

Generous cooking area, and large fuel capacity. Tremendous stability in wind, weather, and rambunctious festivities! Thick steel heats up slowly and dissipates heat evenly for safe, slow thermal curve.

Grill Design

Urban Cowboy, Wrangler, and Ranch Boss units feature 3-piece, hinged, truss-reinforced grills. Add fuel, adjust coals, or adjust interior grates without removing grill. Dude unit has solid, chromed steel grill. Optional hinged upgrade available soon!

Interior Charcoal Grates

Large sizes have 2-piece, removable charcoal grates. Dude has solid-bar charcoal grate. Can (should) be removed when burning or cooking with wood.

Securable Cover

Large units have solid, composite covers. They secure to basin with stainless steel clip pins. Smaller units have soft vinyl covers that secure with Fastex buckles.

Solid Steel Basin Bails

Solid steel bail bars are impervious to abuse – will not sag or bend.

Permanent Foot Pads

Elliptical foot pads are welded to each Cauldron leg to protect your deck surface.
