3Once preheated place the chicken drum sticks into the hot air fryer basket. I generally put 3 in at a time, but it depends on the size of the drum stick. If you have smaller ones you could probably add one more. Don't over crowd them, it's essential that the hot air circulates well around the food.

4At 400'F cook the chicken drum sticks for 20 minutes. Then flip over and brush with some more BBQ sauce Lower the heat to 300'F and cook for another 10 minutes.

5Using a meat thermometer (not touching the bone) check to see if the drum sticks are done. They should register at least 165'F. If it's lower put it back into the fryer and cook for another 5 minutes. I had to do this a few times because my drum sticks were huge.

6Once the drum sticks are done let them sit for about 5-10 minutes, then dig in. These are totally delicious and I've made them many times. It's one of my favourite chicken recipes!
