I have had several aftermarket exhaust systems installed in a variety of cars, and most of them had done the same thing.
The internal/external coatings begin to "cure", or "burn-in" with the heat, and unfortunately, some of the by-products can be pretty noxious! I actually caused the lady in the drive-through window to pass out when she got a whiff of the newly-installed exhaust!

About a week of around-town driving, and the smoke should dissipate.
