Default Truck vibrates like crazy in idle

I took my 2005 5.4l to a mechanic to have them change out all of my spark plugs but do to them getting ceramic pieces from the broken spark plugs "stuck" in the cylinder i decided to get the pieces out myself with a vacum and tube which im pretty sure i removed all the pieces. I put everything back in and cranked it up and a little but of white smoke came out of the tail pipe and the truck is vibrating like crazy. What is causing this?

Did the truck do this before the plug change or is this a result of the plug change? Are any of the coils new or was this a straight up plug change? I'm sure you looked but are all the wires for the coils plugged in?

white smoke could be from penetrating oil used to help remove plugs.. any DTC’s ?

Dumb question but are all the cops plugged in? All vacuum lines hooked back up?

everything is good to go. I guess the white smoke was a result of fuel burning off that was in the cylinders. I cranked it and let it idle for 15-20 minutes and shes running good.
