Smoke After Startup?

I have been noticing a little more smoke than usual on startup. Usually when it is cold (below 30*) my truck has smoked a little until it was warmed up. but it's now 35*-40* when I start my truck up and she smokes for about 2mins and then she's done, because the engine temp has started to come up. I'm just curious if this is unusual for my truck? I'm going to be going in to the dealer next week to get the oil changed and to check the water seperator, is there anything else I should have them take a look at?
Thanks to all.

not that abnormal, what you can do is ask them to check for the latest calibration ,which is supposed to help with cold starts ,smoke, etc., it may help

I called them earlier this week about something else and they said that my PCM is all calibrated to the latest edition.
