Heavy Smoke, Runs Rough...

I now have nearly 15,000 miles on my all stock '08 F250 (except for nearly complete K5 hooter install!). Yesterday I took a 200 mile trip up and back to Stuart. Truck ran great going up and did a full regen on the turnpike at speed.

I filled up at a busy station and headed home in a storm front, first time truck has been driven in rain. I went to pass a car and when I stepped on the pedal the truck had no acceleration, felt like it was missing and very rough and clouds of blue smoke shot out the pipe. The truck was not in regen.

I slowed down and pulled into a service center and shut the truck off. Radiator fluid was fine, no leaks found, oil level was normal but it does smell a bit burned. It was changed 2000 miles ago by the previous owner. Tail pipe was clean and dry. No lights or warnings on dash.

I got back on the road and everything was perfect. Put the pedal down and she flys! No smoke or vibration. Any ideas? Is there something I can get ahead of before it gets really expensive? Appreciate any advice or feedback!

On wet days water will build up in the intercooler until you get on the throttle hard, then the water gets sucked into the engine. Not harmful as far as I know bit it will make you pee your pants if you don't know what it is.
