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.

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

Filip36365 Lol that happened to me once too. I was literally 30 minutes too late.

FallOut Phoenix Easiest solution for this, requires almost no effort since the game practically tells you were to put the IED.

SneakyStabbalot So this is interesting - I got one achievement onsecreen while doing this; but when I checked the cheevs app - both had popped!

Filip36365 @sneakystabbalot I encountered that a few times when unlocking multiple achievements at the same time. Lately my xbox one is having issues (such as an achievement notification appearing) but instead of disappearing after 5 sec it stays until I press the guide button. Really annoying so I'm guessing it's an Xbox live problem, just like your achievements not popping onscreen
