Stock 7.3 white smoke?

I pulled over to look at some jet skis, yesterday and as I was walking back to my truck I noticed a haze of white smoke comming from the tail pipe, I got in and when I pulled back onto the road I watched the tailpipe in the mirror and it puffed a pretty good sized cloud of white smoke, It cleared up within about two seconds and it hasnt done it since then, does anybody have any ideas what could have caused that to happen? The truck is a 2000 f-250 all stock

All the fluids look fine, It smoked for a total of about two minutes while it was idling and once I put it in gear and hit the accelerator it put out a big puff for about two seconds and it hasnt smoked again since then, Im really stumped on this one

White smoke eh? Never seen that before come out of my truck. I remember my old gasser would blow white smoke from burning oil. I went through about a quart a week in that thing. Maybe it's oil Sorry not much help
