Put chicken legs in a bowl with 1/4 cup bbq sauce and mix so they're coated, using hands works well for this.
Pour cup of water into your Foodi and lower down air fryer basket that came with your pot with holes in bottom and handles on the sides.
Put coated chicken legs into basket. They can overlap slightly for this step. I wouldn't add more than 12 medium size legs.
Close pressure cooker lid (one not attached), and steam valve. Press pressure cook button, will automatically set to high, and set for 12 minutes.
When done do a quick release for the steam inside the pot.
Use tongs to carefully remove the legs on to a plate (careful because they'll be tender and want to fall off the bone).
You can drain the water out now if you wish, or not, doesn't matter either way. I left mine in.
Spray the inside of your basket with non stick cooking spray.
Lay one layer of legs back into the basket, do not overlap them at this time. Use a brush to add the remaining 1/4 cup of bbq sauce on to the drumsticks now.
Close air crisp lid and set to 400 degrees for about 10 minutes. Check, if you want them crispier, set for a few more minutes. Remove this batch, put in the next and enjoy when they're all done.
Note: the second and subsequent batches will get done a bit quicker because the machine will have preheated already to 400 so 8 minutes is usually best for these batches.
