Cowboy Cauldron Introduces The Dude at HPBExpo

SALT LAKE CITY, UT - Utah-based Cowboy Cauldron has launched its newest cauldron, The Dude.

Company officials describe The Dude as, “the ultimate portable fire pit and grill combo to accentuate any outdoor adventure. As the smallest among the Cowboy Cauldron products, the Dude is lightweight, convenient, mobile, and it’s affordable! Available at $899, the Dude abides.”

Combining functionality with durable design, the Dude weighs 35 pounds. Made from solid plate steel fire basin, this unit is a compact 24 inches in diameter and built specifically for easy assembly and transport.

Suspended from a tripod frame, the basin can be elevated to any height using an adjustable chain. The Dude has segmented legs similar to tent poles that break down conveniently to fit in the trunk of a car. A charcoal grate, cooking grill and rain cover are included.

“You can grill, smoke, or enjoy the benefits of an open fire with friends,” says Mike Bertelsen, founder, designer, and owner of Cowboy Cauldron. “I’ve never been anywhere that didn’t allow a Cauldron, fire restrictions notwithstanding,” states Bertelsen. “They are clean, efficient, and nestle charcoal or wood deep within the basin. The suspended design and isolation of the heat makes them the most versatile device on the market.”

As a former Washington, DC lobbyist, Bertelsen found his calling after years of camping with friends and cooking meals using a large cast-iron pot. The Dude is the result of five years of rigorous research, testing and development. “It was vital that the Dude be of the same high quality and caliber as our larger cauldron models,” explains Bertelsen.

The Dude will debut March 12-14, 2020, at the HPBExpo (booth #300), the annual Hearth, Patio & Barbecue tradeshow dedicated to showcasing indoor-outdoor living products.
