A quick answer is that the temperature of the pan shouldn't be too hot.  (A
thunderstorm is imminent and I am going to log off soon!)  The pan
shouldn't be on direct heat, I don't believe.  A period balancing pan swung
above a charcoal fire.  A wok on a ring, to keep it from direct heat,
should do the same thing.  The sugar syrup won't cause burning but a
too-hot pan will.
