it back fires because there is still gas in the cylinder. and it has to go someplace so it goes out the exhaust. . . before you shut off your mower, Idle it way down. . let it idle on low for 30sec-1min then shut it off. . . should take care of your prob.

While I agree with this as a likely description of your problem I disagree with that as your only solution. Your engine likely has a anti-backfire solenoid on it that is may not be working, or your valves could be out of adjustment since you just had your head off. It is hard to troubleshoot an engine online but this gives you a few things to look at.
