When you say "smoking", smoking from where? immediate area of suspected leak or out the tailpipe? Water pump or freeze plug both possible. Also hose. If this was done at a regular garage, take it back and have it checked.

I agree, take it back to the shop. It is possible it's just some spilt coolant burning off but you need to find out for sure!
