I would initially be concerned that some sort of oil or fluid is getting onto the exhaust system (manifold, etc) and could be at risk for fire or damage. Smoke is a physical thing of course and should be easy to trace the source of. Do not hesitate and get the vehicle inspected by a professional soon, as some things are not worth risking.
