First start up miss?

I'm hoping y'all can help. When I first start my pickup in the morning it idles rough smoking a little white seems like a miss. I figured it was an injector since the truck has 186k on it. But the thing that confuses me is the miss goes away after you give it about half throttle excellerating and doesn't act up again till the next morning then it's all over again. Any help is appreciated.

I don't care how they do it in Japan

My cousin had a 95' that missed on start up but didn't last as long as your trucks seem to. It was a long time ago so I don't remember exactly how long the miss lasted but I think it was definitely less than a minute. Turned out to need glow plugs. Some cylinders just weren't hot enough to fire yet.

I'm hoping that's what it is. I replaced the relay about 6 months ago hoping that I would have the money to put new glow plugs in when I put new injectors in it. I broke my leg and shoulder back in February so now I'm playing catch up so I guess I'll check the glow plugs first. I was just hoping to do it all at one time.

It would seem unusual to me to have any kind of glow plug issues during the Texas summer though.
