Here is a solution to get magic smoke AND Black hat trick. In Act 2 there will be a mission called Uninvited in which you have to prepare an Ambush for Iraq's men. BEFORE you hack the security terminal to start the countdown until they arrive, plant an IED (not a proximity IED a regular IED) on the tire tracks to the right of the computer (while facing it). The tire tracks will appear as a red square while looking at the ground. Once you plant the IED hide behind the shutter in a spot where you cant be seen, but can still press the button to trigger the IED.
Once the enemy vehicle is over the IED trigger focus and detonate the IED. This will net you the 2 achievements. If you somehow fail to get it just restart checkpoint. Much easier than doing it on criminal convoy.
*Note if you are still having trouble with the focus buy all the upgrades for it and/or complete any 10 levels of chess to unlock a focus upgrade.

Below is a great guide by Lil Miss Cherry that shows how to get the Magic Smoke and Black Hat Trick achievements.

I got this in 4 easy steps:
1 - beefing up my Focus as high as possible,
2 - buying the GL-94 pump-action grenade launcher
3 - killed a couple of civilians to get police attention
4 - once 2 cop cars arrived (Each cop car carries 2 officers) and stopped near one another, I blew them up.

I recommend the GL-94 because you don't have to reload after each shot, otherwise you wont be able to reload a semi automatic launcher fast enough before the focus ends, even with it cranked up to maximum.
