    Some people have "fixed" their oil burning problem without rebuilding their engine.

    Smoke after deceleration can also be oil getting sucked in through worn/dried valve stem seals.

    It takes very little oil to create a major show of smoke. little goes a long way...

    Let your car sit overnight. Have someone else start it first thing in the morning and maybe rev it up a little bit a few times. If it smokes during first start of the day but not while you're driving under throttle, it is more likely to be valve seals than oil rings. Oil rings will create smoke all the time, particularly under throttle.
