What did people use to make the smoke arrows that we see in earlier youtube videos?  Smoke, not fire!...
                          Thanks...

When I was kid we used the biggest Fourth of July rockets we could buy.  Ten inchers with hard fuses, masking taped to full length arrows.  Those babies really flew.

When we were kids, that was AD not BC, someone sold these little smoke bombs,
you lit them and clouds of smoke would come out they made great smokers tied to an arrow.
Today I haven't any idea.....sorry!

On the videos I have seen of the smoke arrows, it looked as though they dipped them into some solution right before nocking and shooting the arrow.  Pretty cool looking.

Dave, exactly what I am asking, what liquid. Someone out there must know.

liquid nitrogen steams when it evaporates.  Certain acidic/alkaline reactions will as well, ammonia and hydrochloric acid.

Ran into Jacques Bonin this Weekend. He suggested it was called liquid smoke. Checked on google and every listing was for a barbecue sauce. Come on, you old timers must know. Skokie?...

There is better stuff to smoke. Smoke generally comes from something burning. Glue a 6" section of old aluminum shaft onto the front of a woodie, or use a plugged aluminum. Drill several small holes near the leading end. Fill with contents of a smoke bomb. Light and shoot.

Remember what I first said...as a youth, we thought it would be fun to stick one (smoke bomb)into a huge old bird house full of sparrow nests. After a visit by the fire department, all that remained was the pole. Never again.
