If it's cold outside, it will smoke like that for a little bit until the engine warms up a little. Mine was doing it and I just had all 6 injectors replaced under warranty earlier this week and it still does it. It only does it for the first 15-20 seconds and stops, which is condensation just like any other car does in the cold. We just warm up quicker, so it doesn't do it as long. I would still do what steelhead01 said in his post anyways to be safe. I just sent my oil out to be tested.
pull your dipstick and whipe the oil on a towel let it hang upright for about 15 min if there is a yellowish halo around the top you got an injector problem my 06 blows some when i first start it on cold days but thats just a little cold fuel in the combustion chamber sounds to me like you got a bad injector or a couple bad ones that are hanging open. Make sure you are changing your fuel filters

MY FCA valve hanging did that to me, guess my rail pressure was all over the place. I though it might of been an injector myself. I took it off, and beat it silly with a rubber mallet until the piston inside was bouncing freely, and i guess it fixed it, been 3 weeks now. I would of bought a new valve, but I don't want to start throwing money at it just guessing, if i don't have to ,and the dealer couldn't figure it out either. Definitely check the oil , don't want a melt a slug.

At about 35*F I will start to get white smoke untill it warms. Never had a problem otherwise. I put an injector cleaner in about once yr for 2 or 3 fuel ups, or if Im on a long haul I will use one at ever fill. Hopefully its nothing, good luck.

I just got back from a weekend out of town, will try and check the oil level in a day or so (It's not my daily driver)
I'm not sure when the symptoms first showed up... it sits sometimes for a week or more at a time....
