How To Make Your Own Smoke Bombs

Smoke bombs are great for signaling if you are in distress or need a quickly concealed getaway. This video shows you how to make high volume smoke with ingredients you can find at your local Wal-Mart and eBay. If you’re lost in the woods and spot a rescue plane a smoke bomb can save your life!

60g KN03 (Potassium Nitrate)
40g Pure Cane Sugar
2tbs Corn Syrup
1tbs Water
2″ Visco Fuse
1 teaspoon Baking Soda (optional, makes the smoke bomb flame-less)

Tools Needed:
Gram Scale
Mortar & Pestle (or some way to grind and mix everything, NO BLENDERS!)
Wire Cutters (Scissors)

*NOTE: Making and using smoke grenades can be dangerous. Use at your own risk.
