Re: What the heck is that smell
If there's a blockage in the vent pipe the tub, sink and toilet will drain slowly and probably gurgle and burp. If your vent pipe goes straight to the roof you could go up and pour drain cleaner down the vent then flush the toilet, drain the sink and the tub. If it's close and you don't want to use chemical, get a long stick (like quarter round) and poke it down through the vent pipe to bust up the blockage. Had this problem with my last house and the stick down the drain pipe worked great. Problem was solved. In my case the previous owners of my last home must have poured a lot of fat (like bacon fat) down the drain and it plugged the vent pipe.
