Can I see a Cowboy Cauldron before I purchase one at Campfire Ninja ?
Yes you can at Campfire Ninja! This is one of the reasons we started carrying the Cowboy Cauldron brand. We wanted to purchase one of these beautiful cauldrons, but no one in Ontario (and as far as we know Canada) carried the full product lineup for us to compare the sizes. So we reached out to Cowboy Cauldron and opened our outdoor showroom for you to be inspired and compare each cauldron. We do our best to keep all cauldrons in stock so when you fall in love with this product you can buy it and take it home with you. If you are unable to visit us in person, feel free to contact us and we'll walk you through the differences.  Once you decide on The Dude, The Urban Cowboy, the Wrangler or the Ranch Boss and any accessories make your purchase at our online store and we'll quickly ship it to you within Canada.
Why should I buy Cowboy Cauldron products from Campfire Ninja? 
Campfire Ninja is an authorized dealer of Cowboy Cauldron products in Canada. This premium brand of fire pits and cooking accessories is located in Salt Lake City, Utah. Campfire Ninja imports all Cowboy Cauldron products directly from Cowboy Cauldron into Canada. This means we look after the shipping, import duties, tariffs, taxes and brokerage fees. All Campfire Ninja prices are in Canadian dollars and incorporate the exchange rate and all import fees, so there are no surprises in your total price. Your final price will be calculated in Canadian dollars based on Campfire Ninja's Product Price + Shipping + Applicable taxes.

When we import our orders from Cowboy Cauldron, it can be a long and bumpy ride from Utah. Just think of the multiple transport trucks, shipping depots, fork lifts, and Canada/US customs a cauldron goes through during shipping. Sometimes things do happen, so we open and inspect each Cauldron prior to sealing it up and shipping directly to you.  

We do our best to keep all cauldrons in stock, so your order can be processed quickly and shipped directly to you from Campfire Ninja (in Canada) directly to our valued Canadian customers.
What makes the Cowboy Cauldron unique?
Cowboy Cauldrons have a timeless design, offers superior function and provide endless entertainment for friends and family. Whether it's just sitting around a campfire and cooking s'mores to grilling a couple of tomahawk steaks on the open fire - you will enjoy the versatility, warmth and luxury any Cowboy Cauldron.

1) 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.

2) 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 perceptibly, when burning. Pendulum + Fire = Happiness!

3) Seamless Plate steel basin, durable finish is 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.

4) Generous Cooking Area and 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!

5) 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 an integrated chain hanger. Set up and take down in seconds, providing a lifetime of enjoyment. Enough said!

SHIPPING | Do you ship Cowboy Cauldrons and accessories?
Yes we do. We ship to most Canadian provinces. We do not ship to the US or International markets.
All Cowboy Cauldron products purchased from Campfire Ninja are shipped from Canada to Canadian customers. Shipping methods vary from product to product. Some Cauldrons are very large and heavy and shipped on a pallet (or skid). A truck with a lift gate is required when delivering to residential addresses.

If you are concerned about shipping or live in a remote region of Canada, reach out to us first and we will do our best to figure out how to get you your Cauldron.
SHIPPING | How do I take delivery of a Cowboy Cauldron?
When Campfire Ninja receives a cauldron order we will call you to confirm the order and to discuss shipping details, or arrange pick-up. When your order leaves our warehouse, you will receive an email from us that will include, a tracking number. 

The DUDE®ships directly to your door via regular carrier, all other Cauldrons ship on a pallet, and are delivered via a freight service. This means that a full-sized truck (typically a semi) will need to be able to get to your driveway. The truck will have a lift gate, and once they arrive, they will simply lower the pallet from the truck to the ground. You can ask the driver to roll a pallet jack a short distance on a flat paved or concrete surface and most truck drivers will try to do so for you.

If you know that a semi truck can not get to your address, a phone call will allow you to make arrangements directly with the driver or the  dispatcher to meet the truck at a convenient location (e.g. at the end of the paved road or driveway). The driver will lower the Cauldron with the lift gate directly onto the ground for you to move to the cauldron's final new home.

As you might guess, Cauldrons get delivered to lots of out-of-the-way places, and in some instances you may need to make special arrangements to meet the delivery truck, etc. We do everything we can to make the delivery as easy as possible. 

For The DUDE - ALL items are in a single box, including the segmented legs.

For the Urban Cowboy, the Wrangler and the Ranch Boss a large box on a pallet will include  the basin, hook and chain, tripod cap, rain cover and charcoal grill. However, the legs will be shipped with the basin in a separate box.
*** Please make sure you get both the basin and the box of legs before the driver leaves. ***
SHIPPING | What type of shipping is used to ship a Cauldron in Canada.
As you can imagine a Cowboy Cauldron is made with a lot of heavy steel - that's what makes them such high quality. This is not your typical Amazon delivery, so some coordination is required by both us and you. Cauldrons ship via something called “LTL (Less-than-Truck-Load) Scheduled Freight Delivery.” This is just a fancy term that means we will have our shipping broker find the best service from our warehouse to your delivery address, and will book a truck with the right equipment to get it to you. Freight trucks are big - typically a semi, and not a box truck, so we ship via scheduled service whereby the carrier calls you to confirm a delivery date and time, and also to allow you to discuss with them if there are any issues getting you your address.
CARE & USE | Does air flow freely through the Cauldron basin?
Yes. Cowboy Cauldrons are designed to burn wood perfectly, just the way they are. The reasons get very technical, and we’ll skip the physics lesson. Just know that the fire goes right in the bottom of the basin, and heat is concentrated in such a way that combustion is very complete. We provide a charcoal grate for times when you might want to use it charcoal cooking, but for fires or cooking with fire, just load, light, and laugh.
CARE & USE | Is assembly required? What tools do I need?
Yes, but assembly is easy and no tools are required. However, it will take two people to safely assemble the Wrangler and Ranch Boss. Reference this assembly video on Cowboy Cauldron's YouTube channel to help get you started
CARE & USE | Is there a hole in the bottom of the basin to drain water?
No. If rain makes its way into the basin (which will happen from time to time) we recommend you tilt the basin to clean out any water. We find that tilting the Cauldron along the bail with the hook is the best method to remove any liquid from the basin
CARE & USE | How do you clean a Cauldron?
Cleaning a cauldron is very similar to cleaning a grill. You'll want to tilt the Cauldron basin on the hook along the bail and, using a wire brush to remove ashes and smaller coals.To keep your Cauldron in its best shape, we recommend treating with Bear Fat available in the Campfire Ninja store.

Note: We'd recommend only cleaning out your Cauldron once all embers have been completely extinguished. Handling hot embers rarely ends well.
CARE & USE | How do you get water out of your Cauldron after a rainstorm?
The soft cover for The Urban Cowboy and The Dude® has been designed to be used with the cooking grill. Put the grill on first, then snap the cover over it. If you use the cover without the cooking grill, water will pool in the cover and drain into the basin. The hard cover on The Wrangler and The Ranch Boss blocks water falling directly onto the cauldron, but can take on water from sprinklers spraying sideways. On all Cauldron models, the cover works best if the basin is at a slight angle. Slide the handle over on the hook a little so water runs off the side.
CARE & USE | Can I use the rain cover to put out a fire?
Every Cowboy Cauldron is shipped with a rain cover. The Ranch Boss and The Wrangler have a hard composite cover that secures to the basin with two stainless steel spring slips. The Urban Cowboy and The Dude include a coated canvas soft cover that secures to the basin with plastic buckles. The Rain covers are not heat resistant. Do not cover the Cauldron until the metal is cool to the touch (usually the following day after a fire). Store the cover away from the Cauldron while it is burning.

Where are Cowboy Cauldrons made?
The largest models of Cowboy Cauldrons, The Wrangler and The Ranch Boss, are made in Salt Lake City, Utah. The smaller models, The Dude and The Urban Cowboy, are made by our production partner in China. The materials, construction, and finish are the same on all domestic and imported Cowboy Cauldrons.
