Air Fryer Kielbasa turns out crispy on the outside and super juicy on the inside! Just two ingredients and a few minutes in the air fryer and you’ll have an easy dinner that everyone will love.



  • 1 package kielbasa, regular or turkey kielbasa (2 large links, 13 ounce package)
  • 1/4 cup barbecue sauce


  1. Preheat the air fryer to 400 degrees if needed.
  2. Cut the kielbasa in half so that you have 4 pieces. Score each piece 4-5 times with a knife and then place into the basket of an air fryer in a single layer.
  3. Cook for 5 minutes, then baste the kielbasa with the barbecue sauce and cook for another 3-4 minutes until crispy and warm in the center.
  4. Serve with extra barbecue sauce and/or mustard on the side.

Recipe Notes

Store: After cooling, place the kielbasa in an air tight container in the refrigerator for up to 3 days.
