handy hints from Scotto as a boy –

How to make a really nifty smoke bomb – (make sure you’re in an open area, and get proper zoning permission if needed)

Combine four parts sugar to six parts saltpeter (potassium nitrate). Heat this mixture over a very low flame until it starts to blend into a plastic substance. When it begins to gel, remove it from the heat and allow it to cool. I suggest that you stick a few wooden match heads into the mass while it’s still pliable. You also add a fuse at this point. The smoke device is non-explosive and nonflammable. A pound of this mixture will produce enough thick smoke to cover a city block. Assorted coloring agents can be added for red, gold, green or darker black smoke….probably others that I don’t know of.

Watch which way the wind blows.
