Could be an intake leak. If engine runs good no miss I think the gaskets are O.K. So intake is the only other way coolant could get in the cylinders.
Did it start puffing right at start or sometime later?

Did it run long enough to heat the muffler good to dry up the antifreeze before fix?
And is it using coolant?

Pressure test the system. This will confirm if you are loosing pressure or not. If you are, this will find the leak.
