check for shorts in the electrolytic power capacitors.

Check the power supply diodes for shorts or opens.
Were up operating into a low SWR antenna?

I take it the fuse blew and you have replaced that?  Make the other 
checks for shorts and opens before powering up again.  Use all your 
senses, sight, nose, etc. to find where the smoke was let out.  (The 
bang was surely some smoke leaving the rig.)
