Hoity, I have a 7lb'er maid by the same company that makes that unit. Mine is a 7#er by weston, I hate to say my rear end ate a mud hole in me and at the time i puchased mine, they told me the 11 lb'er would be coming out by the 1st of the year, but I could not wait. I PRAY FOR YOU THAT THAT UNIT WORKS BETTER THAN MINE. I worked my ass off last week stuffing 10lb of snack sticks, kept blowing out the rubber gasket. Make sure you add about 1 ounce of water more than what is called for or your gasket WILL NOT STAY ON. I called weston on monday last week and they are sending me out a new unit. I hope your 11lb'er works better.
The snack sticks are also so small once the cure kicks in and the meat tightens up I could see where the gasket might blow.,,Perhaps using the next larger casing and binder in the mix would help as well.
I have not had to do it for mine, but I have heard of people folding up some plastic wrap to put between the plunger and the meat. I would bet that for anything but snack sticks you won't face that? Even if then?
Good luck and good smoking.
