BLOWIN' WHITE SMOKE!

I don't use my truck very much anymore, pretty much just hunting and camping. I drove it today for the first time in a few weeks and noticed it's burning a good amount of oil (Large white plumes out of the exaust) it's not constant, seems to do it mainly when I'm at a red light or idling in the driveway, then when I take off its a pretty big burst of white smoke. I'm sure it's something easy but what? Is there a sensor that goes bad and allows oil into the intake system?
Thanks in advance!

White smoke is either unburned fuel or burnt antifeeeze.
How is the fluid level of your cooling system?
What does the smoke smell like?

White/blue smoke is oil, fuel smoke is black. It smells like oil, and I'm 100% sure it's oil. I know what your talking about with the antifreeze but there is no "steaming" coming out the pipe.

Lack of fuel= white smoke. Sticky injectors,filters, fuel line or screen in tank i wouldn't check in that order.

Well it's been a while since I changed the fuel filter. That would be easier than injector O-rings

Check the shaft play on the turbo, mine would do something similar to what you described and it turned out to be a trashed thrust bearing and 2 seals, rebuild kit on eBay $60ish dollars

Thanks for the advice, I haven't tackled it yet, as it isn't my daily driver but definitely want to fix it before duck season.

If you really think it's oil, then I'd check the turbo shaft for play. Maybe even pull the downpipe and see if oil is coming out of the exhaust housing.
