I'm totally like one post behind. So oil quantity is ruled out. You confirmed that's good. If it's truly an oil smoke, I have to go with there's a leak. If i had to bet, I'd say it's a valve cover gasket. Or loosened valve cover bolts. It's leaking in the back -- which is the lowest point when going uphill.

Tiny, when you look at the valve cover, look under the flange that contacts the engine. If you think of the valve cover as a long rectangular bowl that's turn upside down, look under the lip (or rim) of the bowl that contacts the table. THAT'S where the oil would be coming from.
