    Need more information; what is the appearance of the smoke? If the smoke is light vapor that evaporates - this is moisture from inside the tailpipe and exhaust and is considered normal.
    If the smoke is heavier and blueish-white, then this may be related to engine oil being burned in the cylinders. If the smoke noted is darker like soot, then this maybe related to rich fuel mixture.
