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.

Built to Last

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.

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.

Single-Point Adjustable Suspended Basin

Heat radiates out and down. Put your feet right under the basin on a cold day! Minimizes smoke irritation by elevating the fire. Adjustable height to accommodate any patio furniture or location. The Cowboy Cauldron sways, just percetably, when burning. Pendulum + Fire = Happiness!

Seamless Plate Steel Basin, Durable Finish

Impervious to thermal shock or abuse of almost any kind! No seams to crack, weaken, or look at. Solid steel bail bars will not sag or bend. Frames are zinc-treated, then powder coated for maximum weather resistance. Basins are treated with special high-temperature powder coat. Will last a lifetime, and more.

Generous Cooking Area & Fuel Capacity

All four sizes boast tremendous stability in wind, weather, and rambunctious festivities. Thick steel heats up slowly and dissipates heat evenly for safe, slow thermal curve. Urban Cowboy, Wrangler, and Ranch Boss units feature 3-piece, hinged, truss-reinforced grills with a 2-piece removable charcoal grate. Add fuel, adjust coals, or adjust interior grates without removing grill.The Dude unit has solid, chromed steel grill and solid bar grate. Optional hinged grill upgrade available soon!

Details in Design, No Tools Required

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. Elliptical foot pads are welded to each Cauldron leg to protect your deck surface. Laser-cut tripod cap with in integrated chain hanger. Sets up or takes down in seconds, provides a lifetime of enjoyment. Enough said!
