Are you doing a full boil? I believe that BeerSmith makes the assumption that a 3 gallon is a partial boil. In the design screen, you can set the top off to 0 and it should show you your kettle amount to be about 4.25 gallons or so (depends on your equipment profile, boil off rate, trub loss, cooling shrinkage).
