Geoff Manaugh, the guy behind the popular architecture site BLDGBLOG, recently wrote a book that encompasses nearly two thousand years of heists and tunnel jobs, break-ins and escapes. A Burglar’s Guide to the City is a three hundred plus page tome that explores the intersection between burglary and architecture that was written with the help of FBI Special Agents, reformed bank robbers, private security consultants, the L.A.P.S. Air Support Division and architects. We’re not going to go so far as to say that this is a how-to guide that will help you execute your own high stakes heist, but it’s not a bad to place to start.

 You can’t have a fall evening without a fire. And you can’t have a fire without a Cowboy Cauldron. They’re built from solid plate steel, meaning they’ll last a lifetime or two and they come in four different sizes with elevated basins that can be adjusted to any height. We’re going with The Urbaan Cowboy® because it’s perfect for entertaining at home.  With a 30″ diameter basin, it is more than large enough to have a nice fire, but still small enough to pack into a pickup truck and take it with you.  Can you imagine the envy when we bust this puppy out at a tailgate or the beach? We haven’t seen a more handsome fire. You?  Best of all, Cool Material readers get an exclusive deal.
