It's always a good idea to check with the field before you buy them. Every field owner and evend director is different. The ones to look for, like the post above mentions, are called "cold burning" but they won't necessaraly SAY that on them.

This simply means that they do not have a physical flame. There is still a exeothermoic chemical reaction that makes the container VERY hot! Just fair warning.

Now with the lecture out of the way... there is a list on this thread:

This is they type we use at ViperPaintball



They are distress floating smoke signals and run anywhere from 25-40 each.

If possible you can check with a marine supply shop to see if they have any expired canisters. They are no longer able to sell them for boating use but they will work fine for scenario purposes and will be alot cheaper

there are many was to make them for a few bucks per soda can size. The flame just depends on if you make a good case. I make KNO3 and sugar 'nades and make a concrete case lol.

Fuse lit grenades are not usually permitted in woodsball fields(At least in my experience) KNO3 is Potassium Nitrate.

I've made the smoke grenades with saltpeter (KNO3, or potassium nitrate, they're all the same) and it just makes a HUGE flame and not very much smoke. I wouldnt suggest those for scenario games.

A number of years ago I was able to find a great deal on expired canisters on Yahoo Auctions, but that's not an option any more...

Fields and producers down here in SoCal are worried about fires and normally don't allow smoke grenades, even the cold-burning kind.

I've been able to use them in the past with one small change: water. The orange marine smoke grenades are made to float and work in water, so I'd hack a few 2-liter bottles in half ahead of time, fill the bottom half with a few inches of water on the field, drop the grenade in and let 'er rip!

It's a win-win-win: The producers and field owners feel safer knowing the "pyrotechnics" are surrounded by water, their insurance companies are happier and don't raise rates and YOU get to use these schweet smoke grenades!

Of course, always check with the event producer before using anything on field that is out of the ordinary and clean up after yourself.

I find that interesting b/c i make them as well and i get incredible results out of low doses. The problem is the flame (I burned my hair and nose really bad with one of these while "cooking" it ) but anyway not that i have tried it but adding color dyes and baking soda should significantly SLOW the process. Therefore a more even layer of smoke
