Default Cleaned Throttle Body, Now Issues?

I cleaned my 08 Cruiser(Non Turbo) throttle body yesterday and then started the car. When I restarted the car and mashed the gas pedal it seemed like it was going to backfire. Is this because of the cleaner getting into the system. Should this stop after running for a while?

Find a deserted road and stomp on it, if it's long enough, for about 20-30 seconds. That should clear it out. It's just whatever cleaner you used working it's way through the system.

If you don't want to do that, a normal 55-60mph drive for a few minutes should also clean it out.
