I have burning smoke coming from my exhaust manifold and don't know why

(1990 Buick Century)
in Wilkes-Barre, PA on April 27, 2012
I recently noticed I have a burning smoke coming from what appears to be my exhaust manifold where the front pipe connects to the manifold with the 2 stud bolts. Does anyone know what might be causing this issue?

USUALLY THAT IS A VALVE COVER OR COOLANT LEAK CAUSING THIS.MOST LIKELY A VALVE COVER GASKET

Is that the same thing as the exhaust manifold gasket? The gasket that is round like a doughnut?

Ok thanks I already have a gasket for it laying around but I've never replaced a gasket like that before, What can I use to remove the old gasket from the manifold? It's really hard to reach in there.
