I've boiled mopani wood before, and never noticed a stink. Maybe a slight earthy scent in the kitchen, though I don't have the best sense of smell. Try using a campfire stove, or a grill, and boil it outside, changing water every time it gets brown. Heck, you can make a day of it and grill up some brats and ribs next to it
