Sounds like the caliper pins were not lubed properly or the caliper piston is not retracting back properly.

The pins were in excellent shape I added more grease, the pistons compressed very easily with a pair if chanel locks ? Any other thouhgts Thanks

Did you spray off rotors with brake clean before installing ? If not the light grease that they out on them to keep them from rusting will cause the problem you are having and would definitely cause the smoking.
