Go the the Wild Edibles board, search back for a thread called Spiles/Spouts and they have websites for suppliers of maple sugaring supplies.

I have been using my turkey deep fryer. Works pretty well.

No you need one that allows more surface area. Then it would work Really well.

Re: looking for a maple syrup boiling pan

Yeah, but then I'd have to stand over it and keep adding more sap to it and worry about it getting too low and burning, etc. With this I turn it on, go check it in about 6 hours and its about ready to bring into the house to finish.

Crow, Do a google search for WEGNER METAL WORKS. Andy does nice reasonable work, a 2x3 pan would probsbly do you good to start out.

Re: looking for a maple syrup boiling pan

The one I use, I made myself out of cheap carbon steel.....its about 33x40 or so, I just bought a flat sheet, cut the corners bent it on a brake, and welded a box out.............I also torched a hole in it and welded a 1" nipple in there for threaded fittings to drain...........All in all I have about 60 bucks into it........it works pretty good.......we have used it for about 5 years......For next year we are building a new evaporator using a couple coal stokers, and some stainless pans....

Re: looking for a maple syrup boiling pan

Oh yea, I welded a few straps over a corner, and I can set a 5 gallon bucket full of sap there with a hole drilled in it, to keep adding .........I stick a nail in the hole to control the amount of sap running out into the pan.....

Re: looking for a maple syrup boiling pan

I saw some shallow stainless steel pans at a institutional kitchen supply place. Pretty reasonable for the size. I would worry about how thin the metal bottom was though.

The wider and shallower the better for evaporation, but I have been using 20 qt stainless stock pots for a long time. They are about 22 inches in diameter.
