Blue smoke indicates oil I s being burnt in the cylinders and for a newly rebuilt engine, it can occur and takes a little driving to get any residual oil in system out.

The juddering could be anything from a bad spark plug to a job not correctly done. You should refer back to the shop to have them rectify it.
