My F350 smoked stock all the time. THe DPF was *not* cracked, but it still smoked like a locomotive every time you hit the gas. My F450 virtually never smokes. Even when you really hit it, it will give only the faintest bit of black smoke.

Every truck is different. Even when they are the same year, same calibration, same engine, etc. I wouldn't worry about it unless it gets worse.

Mine never smokes except when it had the bad charge air cooler and then it was white smoke. It only did it if it had been raining. TSB 08-25-1.

Did you buy it new? How many miles on it now?

I don't believe it's right but the people that have the problem often get told it's normal.
