Pugs glad to see your still around. Gotta disagree with ya, foul brood, to me, reminds me of rotting meat, in Washington, from what I've been told anyway, you just have to burn the infected frame and comb.
Check with your local and state AG department for the requirements before you destroy all your equipment.
The oder may have come from the area that the bees were in, chimney-flue-smoke stack-may not have anything to do with a disease. Was it an older house?? They may have 'picked' up the oder of the wall, dank,musty, old wood gives off a burnt oder and it may have permeated any comb you got from the cut-out. May even be caused by what you used to smoke them with, if you used a smoker.
IMHO, wait before you act and make sure.
