Sounds like an Intake Plenum leak, are you using any oil?

With the engine off, take the air hat off and look down inside the Thottle body with a flash light, if you see oil it is the plenum....

What color is the smoke?
Black smoke its running too rich, could be an o2 sensor
Blue smoke is oil getting into the combustion chamber, could be plenum or bad rings
White smoke is water, bad headgaskets most of the time.

i have a 99 ram with 115k and everytime i let it idle for an extended period ie 10-15min. i get smoke out the tail when i first take off, could be valve seals.
