blue smoke cold start up

I have noticed that since it got cold here 14 or so I have blue smoke when I start my truck to let it warm up. I have a dpf delete is all is that normal?

Something to look into. Sounds like its running rich possibly injector starting to leak. Mines deleted and it gets very cold up here in Alberta never smokes on startup

We'll I think it was sct programmer. It set out in the cold for a week it doesn't have a plug in it was never above freezing all week down in single digits. Retuned it and I think I'm good now . It got worse before I retuned it now it acts ok . Do these trucks all have block heaters and some aren't wired up?

You put to stock exhaust on? If so the dpf might be masking your problem
