Check air filter clean throttle body with throttle body cleaner spray also replace fuel filter if have not done so in a while. Add fuel injector cleaner to gas tank.

I agree, sounds like a fuel system problem. Usually when an engine backfires out the throttle body it's an overly lean (not enough fuel) air/fuel mixture. Also check for damaged or disconnected vacuum lines. That can cause this condition as well. HTH. -Jim
