What causes sputtering, back fire, little to no pickup, strong fuel smell?

(1994 Chevrolet S10)
in Sulphur, LA on May 18, 2017
My truck sputters when I start it at times it will shift correctly but mostly doesn't run smooth, like it's having a hard time getting fuel. It will backfire between 40-50mph it has a strong gas smell when running and it wants to die out when in reverse while backing up.
