Sputters on idle but revs...

Hey guys,

Went out to my truck this morning to start it and habit big issues. Started cranking and when it when to fire it seemed to back fire up the engine. It resulted in some smoke that rolled from under the hood and won't idle. It sputters when it fires and dies almost instantly. If I keep my foot in it it revs and I can faintly nurse it to keep it running. The nose was parked over a puddle sink had to reverse drop it to get to the engine with out standing in 6" of water, truck wasn't in water what so ever tho. It's been sorts cold here(29*) but I'm up on fluids and that sort. It turned fine when I hit the key so I'm certain it wasn't froze over.

Thanks guys
