in my science class we made smoke bombs out of KNO3 ( suger ) and some stump remover. Stump remover can be found at Steins of at fleet farm. to make the smoke bombs you NEED the powdered version of the stump remover. first you need to get a hot plate and a pan that is getting old or you can use a tin pie pan. the ratio or the suger to stump remover is 3 to 1 so that means that for every one cup of stump remover you have 3 cups of suger. mix the 2 evenly in the pan on minimal heat. when the mixture starts to turn brown you can shape the mixture but be carful because it will be hot. if the temp. of the hotplate is too high then the mixture will ignite so i reccomend doing this outside. When you want to ignite these there are 2 ways you can do so. 1 if the smoke bomb is just for fun hold a flame to it untill it ignites. 2 if you are using is in an airsoft war or paintball war, take the mixture when it is in its moldable state and put it in a cardboard tube. tske some fireworks fuse and put it in the smoke bomb.

That would be sugar and KNO3 which is the stump remover. According to outside sources, it's 99.9% KNO3. I dunno about the 0.1%.

You can cut up a bunch of ping pong balls into shreds and wrap it around foil. You then heat the foil till it starts to spew out white smoke.You can also mix 60% of potassium nitrate with 40% of sugar. You can etheir put this powder into a case such as a capped pvc pipe, or alot of foil. You can also CAREFULLY heat it in a pan until it starts to melt into somthing that looks like penut butter.

 I don't mean to offend you but, Although this method using ping-pong balls does work  quite well it also produces deadly Chloride gas which happens to be the same as the stuff in poisen gas attacks in World War I or  World War II. I just thought I'd warn you about it :D

How man that was 2007 - He's gone.
But there isn't any chlorine / chloride in there, where's that idea coming from?

 I'm not sure exactly what chemical is released but look it up on the internet.
And if not then the smoke is still way more harmful than normal. And I don't know if he's gone? 
Sorry if  I'm completely wrong with this idea though :(

 Sorry about the mix-up with the chemicals Lemonie.
Its hydrogen Cyanide that can be produced from ping pong balls not Chloride gas. Here is a link to a site that confirms it: Link. It says it in the second to last bullet point of the section on warnings about half way down the page :)

There's good research, thanks for digging that out. Yes you may produce HCN if the balls are nitocellulose or otherwise contain nitrogen.

an empty can, (any size will do, and DONT throw the top away) aluminum foil, Kno3, sugar, a drill, superglue, duct tape, masking tape, a fuse, and some "strike anywhere" matches
step 1) drill holes in the side of the can in this pattern every inch:
o
o o
step 2) using the super glue, glue the foil around the out side of the can. take your fuse and match and tape them together with the masking tape and slide them through one of the holes to were the head is still sticking out of the hole
l (out side of can)
======o match and fuse
inside l
step 3) cook your 60/40 of kno3 and sugar till it's like peanut butter and spoon it into the can. then apply super glue to the can top and stick it back on, secure with duct tape, let it harden, then remove the foil around the can.

strike with the striker off the box and throw, quickly!
