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.
