A Cowboy Cauldron basin is suspended in the air. This is amazing for lots of reasons. First, you can get your feet right up underneath the fire on a cold day. Niiice… Try doing that with a fire pit!
Second, unlike a ground fire, the smoke from a Cauldron is already on its way up and away from you by the time it leaves the rim of the basin. We love wood smoke, but a little is great, but a face-full is too much!
The Cauldron is better than a ground fire, or anything that sits on the ground, by a long, long shot. Sit by one for an hour, and every other fire feature you ever sit next to for the rest of your life will make you wish you were sitting by a Cowboy Cauldron.
