If you seal one end with cellotape, it is inportant to not provide much confinement, two layer is the max.
Fill with bp but do not pack any of it down, it's important the allow a certain amount of air to stay in the powder.
Insert fuse and cover over the other end the same as before.
Depending on a few factors, like tape gauge, tac and length in contact with sides, you will get a pop or thud ranging to a light bang. It produces approx 16m3 of dence white smoke in an instant. Don't use grain powder, you will not get as much smoke and you will probably deathen anyone near, maybe drop the ocasional heart condition sufferer.
A different approch is the mill up some KNO3 sugar smoke mix and mix that with bp. This burns for a second or so and produces more smoke, but the down side is the immediate area gets very hot compared to the bp on it's own.

I do not know if mothballs (I guess we are talking napthalane) will dissolve in 'gasoline' to start off with (maybe xylene or benzene will do it) and the 'poof' will not be instant (is said person trying to suggest that the addition of the mothballs with increase the burning rate?)
Why not just burn a tire (sp) (of course that would be bad for the environment)

Melt the two together, then grind it up when its solidified. I doubt you would even need to grind it up much, a few good whacks with a hammer into small lumps would probably have the desired effect.

There are smoke formulas that use kclo3 that may fit your needs.

will an open pile of BP maybe with a bit more C in the mixture not work?
Extra Charcoal would make the mixture slower, perhaps adding more KNO3 would speed up the reaction.
