A liquid fuel/oxidizer rocket with ignition failure is not something that I would like to have in my back yard...

Or engine failure for that matter.

And if using stuff like NO2, well not without proper PPE.
That stuff turns your lung into mush. Just like a virus.

But I was thinking about water/chlorate/fuel premixes?
Steam punk... I haven't done the energy balance. Ignition might be a problem to.
A man can not have too many variacs

Be careful not to confuse NO2 with N2O.   The latter, nitrous oxide, is a common oxidizer for hybrid rockets -- from hobby scale to manned vehicles.  Its physical properties (density, vapor pressure, etc) are almost the same as those of carbon dioxide.  It's nontoxic enough to be used as propellant in cans of whipped cream.  Some people inhale it for fun, which would not last long  if they used NO2 by mistake.
