 Premium Stainless Steel Hybrid Hobby Pan

The Smoky Lake Hybrid Hobby pans are a flue pan and a front syrup pan all built into one.

The Smoky Lake Hybrid Hobby pan will evaporate 250% faster than a standard flat pan. The pan has eight drop flues in the back and two finishing compartments in the front. Being that it is one pan you don’t need to worry about gaskets and there are no external transition fittings which cool your sap down. Switching to a hybrid pan is as simple as just replacing your flat pan. The stainless steel draw-off valve and 0–50 maple thermometer are included. Every pan comes with brackets and ports for a float box so you can add one now or later on.

All Smoky Lake Maple pans are made with premium 22 gauge, mirror finish stainless steel. The side profile of the pans are designed for extreme durability and includes full length handles to make them easy to move. All of our valves and fittings are pure stainless steel, NOT just nickel plated. All of our equipment is fully TIG welded to the highest food grade standards. We are very proud to offer the very best equipment in the maple industry. Made in the USA.

Corsair Arch

This revolutionary evaporator design is fully convertible from conventional draft to forced draft in an instant. The airtight front gives you a critical advantage in efficiency and performance whether you’re running the forced air kit or if you choose to keep things simple with natural aspiration. 

The large loading door nicely compliments the large combustion chamber. This air-tight door will help prevent cold air from being pulled along the bottom of pan, negatively effecting evaporation rate and efficiency. 

The Corsair arch is fully steel framed. The entire perimeter is built as strong as possible, giving you confidence when filling the pans above it with your precious liquid and igniting an intense fire inside it. Additionally, the arch fits the geometry of whatever pan set you plan to use on it, forcing the pan to take full advantage of the heat created within. The nice, big firebox is 24″wide x 32″tall x 25.5″deep.

Insulating the Arch

You will need 20 thick bricks and 20 thin bricks (for the firebox) and 1 case of ceramic insulation blanket (for the rest of the arch and behind the bricks). See our Brick and Insulation Kit for more information.

Please note: fire brick/ceramic blanket not included.

Forced Draft Kit Option

Forced Draft Kit includes domed gratesBENEFITS:

  • Much higher evaporation rate compared to natural draft.
  • Easier to burn larger/unseasoned wood. This means you won’t have to cut your firewood as fine and you can burn wood that is less perfect.
  • Increased agility. You will be able to shut down your evaporator much faster because it allows firewood to burn quicker and more completely.


The forced draft option includes upgraded domed cast iron grates and an electric blower. If ordered at this time, the blower will come pre-mounted to the arch. Otherwise, if you order the arch as conventional draft, the back of the Corsair firebox will include a perforated knock out and mounting studs to accommodate a forced air kit in the future. If the time comes when you need more performance, just remove the knock out, mount the blower and replace the steel grates with the kit’s new perforated, domed cast iron grates.
