Burning rear brakes (just installed)

Just replaced front and rear brake pads on my 2005 g6. Fronts were fine but for whatever reason the rear brake pads feel hot and smell like they burning. Anyone ever have this issue?

When installing the rear calipers was it a snug fit? Maybe an e-brake cable or mechanism on the caliper is sticking.

Do you use your e-brake often?
