FAQs
  • How do I cook over the READY RING ™?
    We are currently developing a system to cook over the READY RING ™. Before we offer this system, it is important we put it through our own rigorous field testing and ensure it is safe for food preparation. When we first started Oak Forge USA, we knew product innovation would come from necessity and firsthand experience. Once we know we've developed a 5 star cooking system, we'll announce it on our social media channels and send out a product launch email. Sign up for our mailing list so you get real time updates on new product launches! To sign up for our mailing list, simply scroll to the bottom of our website.

  • How do I set up my READY RING™?
    Set up is simple! Each plate is designed with hooks on the right side and hook holes on the left side. Hook each plate into the left side of the next plate until you've created a ring. The READY RING™ was designed to be customizable. Create a sturdy fire ring with as little as four plates and as many as twelve plates.
  • How many people can sit around a READY RING ™?
    The READY RING ™ was designed to be customizable. Create a sturdy fire ring with as little as four plates and as many as twelve plates. As always the number of people you choose to seat around your READY RING ™ is up to personal preference. As a 'Rule of Thumb', we generally advise customers to purchase the original 8 plate READY RING ™ to seat 6 people or less. If you plan to seat more than 6 people around your READY RING ™, we recommend purchasing the READY RING ™ XL, which comes with 12 plates. If you have already purchased the original 8 plate READY RING ™, but plan to seat more than 6 people, we recommend purchasing our 4 plate expansion pack to expand your READY RING ™.
  • Is the READY RING ™ Painted?
    No, the READY RING ™ is not painted. It is constructed of unpainted, pure 14 gauge 304 stainless steel.
  • Will the READY RING ™ rust?
    The READY RING ™ is made from pure 14 gauge 304 stainless steel, which offers excellent corrosion resistance. Under normal wear and tear conditions, rust and corrosion will not occur. If the READY RING ™ is exposed to any sort of acid or salt product, the READY RING ™ should be washed immediately to avoid corrosion.
  • Is there a limit to the number of READY RING ™ plates which can be combined?
    Create a sturdy fire ring with as little as four plates and as many as twelve plates. After putting the READY RING ™ through our own personal field testing, we do not recommend creating a fire ring with more than twelve plates, due to lack of sturdiness. The largest READY RING ™ plate set Oak Forge USA sells is the READY RING ™ XL, which comes with twelve plates. Click here to shop the READY RING ™ XL.
  • How heavy is the READY RING ™?
    We engineered the READY RING ™ to be as lightweight and compact as possible, while still offering the rugged strength you're looking for. Our fire rings are made with 14 gauge stainless steel; 5x more durable than the leading competitor. The 8 plate configuration is approximately 17lbs, while the 12 plate configuration is approximately 25 lbs. A single plate weighs just over 2 lbs.
  • Will the appearance of the READY RING ™ change over time?
    Yes! Eventually, your READY RING ™ will begin to oxidize and develop a unique patina of colors as the plates are heated and cooled over time. The READY RING ™ is constructed from wear-resistant stainless steel, however, how quickly the appearance of the steel changes depends on how often you use it and the elements you expose it to. If your READY RING ™ becomes dirty from dirt and soot we offer a cleaning and polishing system, specifically tested and created for the READY RING ™. Shop the cleaning kit here.
  • Are all READY RING ™ plates the same?
    The idea for the READY RING ™ was born from necessity and personal experience. Not only did we want to create the most durable and portable fire ring on the market, but we also wanted it to be as versatile as possible. We designed all the READY RING ™ plates with a standard, interchangeable design to be fully customizable. Create a fire ring with as little as 4 plates and as many as 12 plates. If you have the original READY RING ™ (8 plates) but want more versatility, shop our 4 plate expansion pack.
  • How do I clean my READY RING ™?
    We recommend washing your READY RING ™ with mild soap and water, then drying it, after each use. We are currently working on developing a cleaning system specifically designed for the READY RING ™. Once we know we've developed a 5-star cleaning system, we'll announce it on our social media channels and send out a product launch email. Sign up for our mailing list to get real-time updates on new product launches!
  • What type of firewood do you recommend using?
    We recommend using seasoned, hardwood firewood, as it will likely burn cleaner and produce minimal smoke.
  • Is the READY RING ™ smokeless?
    The READY RING ™ system was designed to minimize smoke when used as directed. The key to a fire that emits minimal smoke is optimal airflow, fuel (dry hardwood firewood), as well as heat retention. The READY RING ™ was engineered to help produce this optimal ratio. Learn more about using the READY RING ™ as directed by downloading the User Manual.
  • How do I clean the GO Bag?
    The GO Bag READY RING ™ Carry Case is made from a highly durable, waterproof material. Simply wash the bag with mild soap and water, then allow it to dry fully before using it. We do not recommend putting the GO Bag in a washing machine or dryer.
  • Is the GO Bag carry case fireproof?
    No! The GO Bag READY RING ™ Carry Case is NOT fireproof. It should be kept away from heat and flames to prevent injury or damage!
  • Is the GO Bag waterproof?
    Yes! The GO Bag READY RING ™ Carry Case is made from a highly durable PVC-backed polyester material to create a sealed, waterproof carrying system. This is the same material used to create protective covers for grills, vehicles, and outdoor equipment. When field testing bag materials, we felt this material was the most durable and waterproof. We are confident it will withstand anything outdoor life throws your way. If your GO Bag endures enough wear and tear that it needs to be replaced, please recycle the old bag. Shop replacement GO Bags here.
  • How do I send customer feedback?
    As always, feedback and suggestions are appreciated by our team. Customer communication allows us to stay up to date on how to improve and what new products to offer. Let's keep in touch!

  • Where are Oak Forge USA products made?
    All Oak Forge USA products are proudly manufactured with care in the United States and used by our very own family. We believe in producing the highest quality products on the market, so we are our own quality control. By manufacturing on our home soil, we are able to offer the oversight needed to ensure every family receives the same quality our family looks for.
  • Are Oak Forge USA products sustainably made?
    As serious outdoor enthusiasts, we are passionate about conserving our planet's natural beauty. From the very beginning, we pledged commitment to 1% For The Planet and Leave No Trace. These commitments were made before we even made our company website live to the public. For us, these commitments were a matter of necessity. In addition, our products are designed with longevity and durability in mind, not mass production for the discount retailer. If one of your Oak Forge USA products endures enough wear and tear that it needs to be replaced, please recycle or donate the used item. We encourage you to join us in conserving the outdoors for families to enjoy for generations to come.
  • How durable are Oak Forge USA products?
    We founded Oak Forge USA with a simple mission; build the fire ring we’d use. A fire ring that was built for the serious outdoor enthusiast rather than for the mass-discount retailers. One that could take the abuse we knew we’d put it through, out in the field and wilderness. One that simply wouldn’t rust or dent on the first use. We decided early on that product innovation would come from necessity and firsthand experience. We believe in producing the highest quality products on the market, so we are our own quality control. By manufacturing on our home soil, we are able to offer the oversight needed to ensure every family receives the same quality our family looks for. Oak Forge USA products perform when it matters most - whether that be an excursion into the remote Montana wilderness, touring the coast, or just getting together with family and friends in the backyard. At our core we believe in two things, producing high-quality outdoor gear with conservation in mind and bringing family and friends together. Learn more about our story here.
