Default My G2 reeks, stinks after it heats up.

Hello everyone. I pop in once a year or so. Always appreciate your expertise!
Halloween is coming up and my wife finally told me to do something about this darn gassy odor (it's not me) that my G2 puts out. It's so bad that people comment on it even. (once again, not me) It's that gas/exhaust kind of gross hot odor.
Plug is good. Carb is new. spark plug, check! New oil, check. Plug in gas tank is in. Gas cap is just fine. No leaks in fuel lines.
It does not seem to be running rich at all. I do however need to choke it for the first couple of minutes to get it warm enough. Could the fuel pump be an issue? That's kind of the last stop in my mind to take. I"ll be replacing the two fuel lines but I am wondering if the fuel pump may be the culprit? Hoping for some help so i don't continue to stink! thank you!

Possibly something in the muffler? Baffle broken, insulation, or something foreign...

thanks for the reply swm!
You know, i was just trying to read up on here about the muffler and potential clogs. Thinking it's time for the ol' muffler BBQ? I see some guys take off the muffler and stick it on a fire and let all the old oil and other build up burn off. Anyone try thing with success? If I do the BBQ, how long do i let it sit on the coals. Man my wife already thinks i am a nut bag but this may really do the trick.

Does it smoke at all? Generally the muffler bbq is to burn out all the unburnt oil inside the muffler. Common in 2stroke motors because oil is mixed in with the gas, but also if you rebuild a 4 cycle engine that has been smoking for a long time, there can be quite a bit in there. I throw them in a fire pit until they stop smoking, let em cool off for a while and reinstall.

Does it smell like raw fuel? Or just regular exhaust smell? What plug are you running? Is the carb OEM or aftermarket? Is the tailpipe off your muffler sooty?

nope CP.. no smoke. It's all good aside from that darn reeking smell. So should I bbq or not? I am kind of wondering if i need to throw the $15 on the fuel pump to see if that it's not pushing enough through or not. Hell i don' t know.
