Three Drums & 4 Thighs. (Air Fried Naked)



Gotta make some more Naked Drums & Thighs in My Air Fryer, because I luv-em!!!
Last time I packed 7 Drums & 5 Thighs in the basket, and it affected how even they heated, so I won’t be doing that again.
This time I put 3 Drums & 4 Thighs in, so the air had room to flow around the pieces.
So first I sprayed a little olive oil on them, then into the basket & into the Fryer, set @ 380°.
Then at 25 minutes, I pulled the basket, coated with Jeff’s BBQ sauce, flipped them over, and coated that side too.
Then back in again until 35 minutes total time. This made them all over 175° IT.
So the first night I plated 2 Thighs with some Mashed Taters, with Cream of Chicken Soup for Gravy.
And I added a few carrot slices on the side, for a change.

Then the next night I cut a lot of Dark Meat off the bones, and put it on a Kaiser Roll, with some of Jeff’s BBQ Sauce.
Then I added a couple of Deviled Eggs to my plate. And a couple Dill Pickle Spears.


That’s All Folks,

Bear

The airfryer strikes again!

With Winter coming the airfryer and the smokeless grill will be getting plenty of use.

That looks great John, Like! Thanks for posting the temps and time, now I've got something I can follow to do a cook on this contraption. The cookbook that came with my AF is worthless. RAY

Looks good John! Don't think I have cooked anything in my air fryer besides fries and hush puppies. Need to change that.

Thanks Bear! I checked out your Step by Step and there is just a wealth of 360 information in there, far better than what Emeril provided in the box. Thanks again John! RAY

Looks real good Bear. Chicken is perfectly cooked and juicy. I just got an air fryer last week. We've only used it 2 or 3 times so far, but love it! Gonna have to learn all of the tricks, etc. Your step by steps are very easy and thorough. Can't wait to delve into this toy. Big like!

Thank You Rich!!
My usual Chicken Sammy is Cold White Meat with Miracle Whip.
However with Dark Meat it's gotta be Hot, with BBQ Sauce.
And Thanks for the Like.

Thank You Ray!!
None of my New Toys have much of a Recipe book that came along.
Probably the best one was the one that came with my Showtime Rotisserie, about 20 years ago.
And Thanks for the Like.
