Check your intake and exhaust manifold bolts for tightness. Happened with me last week

could be moisture in the cylinders from sitting overnight fowling a plug until it dries out enough to fire the gas. Pending nothing else is wrong...

...always start with plugs. They are designed to fail after an avg. of 20-30,000 miles or so. Some say 50,000 or 100,000 miles but still, they're spark plugs. They take more regular abuse than many other things. Even 1 gas station with crappy gas can ruin the plugs and it really takes a hit on the smoothness of the idle and also acceleration.
