SOURCE: puffs blue smoke
Blue smoke is caused by engine oil entering the cylinder area and being burned along with the fuel air mixture. As with the white smoke, just a small drop of oil leaking into the cylinder can produce blue smoke out the tailpipe. Blue smoke is more likely in older or higher mileage vehicles than newer cars with fewer miles.
This could mean a cracked head or bad gasket....It costly

If its in the engine compartment there is an antifreeze leak..If it inside the car like like near to the windshield, you have a bad heater core. Good Luck contact me if you need more help.

now this may be a long shot... but i had a similar problem on my cutlass. but it wasnt wiring...... it was from the tube running from the head of my engine...... the smell and smoke were coming from hot oil coming out of the crank case vent tube and then being sucked into the air inlet for the heater/ ac.
since a electrical wire's protective cover is petroleum based as is oil.... they smell very similar

I agree with csmock132, I would wait till you get some more mileage. But since this is blue smoke and not black or gray it could be rich (too much) fuel. You say "off-idle", does it do it without a load or while accelerating in gear? Maybe the accelerator pump stroke needs to be reduced. Anyway it is better for the engine to be richer than leaner.
