Right! A little smoke is normal sometimes but not the whole weld. I looked closer at the pic and you even have soot on the table :shock:. Gas trouble somehow/somewhere. Is your nozzle and contact tip full of spatter? It builds up really quickly if you don't use nozzle gel and will cut your gas flow down considerably.

If the bugs were coming in was there a breeze blowing around as well?

Before I did that weld, I took the nozzle apart and cleaned a ton of brown crap out of it.
