Unhappy long trips and big smoke clouds

I have an 09 1500 with the 4.7 and from day one when I drive long trips (over 30 minutes at insterstate speeds usually cruise controlling) when I get off the interstate and start driving lesser roads or even stop at a rest stop and take back off there is a huge I mean HUGE cloud of white smoke and the engine tries to stall out. Has anyone had this happen or heard of it?
