and is it supposed to smell bad (like vomit?)

When I make beef broth, I would have the frozen beef bone drowning in water. Bring to the boil then tip the whole thing out in the sink.
I clean the bone with cold water to get all the yucky stuff off of it then bring another pot to the boil, wait for it to boil then put the beef bones (that i cleaned) back in. Then cook for 3 hours
The reason why I do it like that is 1. remove the smell and 2. removes any chemicals that may of been used on the meat and kill off any bacteria.
The end result would be clear beef broth.

No, you cook them when you boil them. Cooking broth like that can have a different smell than what most people would be used to, but if it really does smell like barf something is off.
