Is there a paint on the rotors? Could be that or something in the pads smoking off. Depends on how new everything is. If it is all new, it might be something that can be fixed with a good spray of some brake cleaner.

Do any offroading? Somtimes my friend will get grass and [shizzle] stuck in his and they smoke for a while. I also agree with the others, if nothing else it sounds like crappy pads. Were they autozone brand or something?
Got the pads from Baxters...although their 'cheap' brand. I might have to go a step up and maybe get some Bendix or Ceramics (don't want to go this route tough)...we'll see. I don't want my wife driving and having them catch fire...that would have fail written all over it
