valve cover leak dripping onto the uppipe? you're just going to have to look around with a flash light and see what it is.

Check the power steering level too. I just fixed mine, but it had gotten bad enough that you could smell and see smoke waiting at a stop light. The hoses can fail around your mileage, and leak onto the exhaust manifold. It was at the point of being a little embarrassing by the time I collected all the parts and set aside the time to fix it.

Is the smoke coming from under the hood or out the exhaust? If it's out the exhaust, I'd suspect turbo seals. If the hood, then look for oil leaks. If your engine bay isn't clean, have it cleaned and then just watch if for a week. The oil leak should become apparent.

I have this problem exactly, and will be changing the valve cover gasket very soon
