Sulfur often indicates the presence of demons in Supernatural.

Sulfur is such a clear indicator that it is one of the first things that Sam and Dean look for at the site of a supernatural event. It was used in 7.15 Repo Man by Jeffrey to trick Sam and Dean into thinking that a demon is behind a series of murders, when in fact Jeffrey is the killer.
