So I started my Boss up...

So I started my Boss up which was totally cold and as it cranked it hesitated a bit, and started up on what could be described as a "big cam" lopey idle (no Trackey...) - think really really rough... and it appears to have gotten stuck in crank enrichment.

I turned it off after a few seconds and there was a cloud of fuel rich smoke - filled the whole damn garage.

Let it sit for a few seconds... start it up and runs fine.

It literally acted like the crank fuel enrichment got stuck and it didn't correct itself.

Anybody ever have this happen?

Thanks... so it's not just me. Odd, but I'm not going to worry too much about it...
 
I had that happen to me one time, but it happen after a quick start to pull it out of a garage, when I restarted it I did the same as you described. I assumed fuel pooled up after the quick start.
