First thing,you do have a leak if it go,s through that much coolant that quick,and if you dont see coolant coming out some where under radiator or engine,there is a internal leak,meaning going out the exhaust,have some one rev car,and you check the exhaust with a rag,if it gets damp,you have engine problem,s.

Have seen them do this without smoking at all,just blow drops of water out.
