Loud 'Pop' and puff of Smoke

Just de-winterized today, when I started it, heard a 'pop' then turned and saw a puff of smoke from the engine. Checked everything out, could not find anything, so started again, fired right up, brought it up to temp, no issues.

Any ideas? '08 MCX 200 hrs.

did it come out of spark arrestor? could have been a detonation from winterization.. no check engine light?

Couldn't tell exactly where it came from, by the time I turned to look at engine the smoke was above the engine. Could have been from the arrestor, it was above the forward of the engine. No alarms or warnings.
