I always appreciate a ghetto cannon that just makes a band and a flame. Have you ever thought of putting in way too much fuel so you simply end up with a huge flame?

I have a ghetto coke bottle combustion floating around here, which was a highly complicated system of a grill sparker and a coke bottle.

I once made a cannon similar to this. I used 6 pop cans taped together, a 4 inch fuse stuck into the touch hole to ensure safety, and a small balloon filled with pure oxygen and propane to fire a wadded golf ball. It exploded with a massive bang, sending the shredded cans all over my yard. I never did find the golf ball.
