To add my 2 cents I would see a different dealership that is unless you would like to do some checking out yourself.
If the brakes are not sticking shut as you say then the only other thing that would causing smoking of the brakes would be possibly a wheel bearing going out on all the wheels. Highly unlikely. Leads me to believe its a issue with the brakes.
Go out in morning jack up each wheel and note how they spin. Pump the brake a few times and spin and feel on each wheel if it changes them any. If one of them gets harder to turn then I would be checking to make sure calipers are sliding freely and releasing pressure. But you say they are all locking up? If this is the case I would be hunting at the master cylinder and making sure it is properly adjusted and not overfilled with fluid causing the fluid to heat up and make the brakes self apply.
If master cylinder is all good. Start chasing towards the hydraulic control unit and make sure the lines to it are not kinked or obstructed and that the hcu is not internally clogged.
If its all wheels locking up it could be bad lines or calipers/wheel cylinders but its highly unlikely they all went bad at once. Unless someone added transmission fluid to the brake system on accident.
