Will Making Brownies Make The Whole House Smell Like Marijuana?
I've never ever used marijuana when baking something.. I'm planning to do some experimenting next week so I just want to know if it will stink up my house?
Make it into butter first, and when its ready just melt the butter and replace the oil on a "just add water and oil" packet of brownie mix...REALLY simple!
EDIT: Iv never baked with just ground up weed, so I cant answer your original question, but making butter doesnt smell too strongly, not more than smoking a joint anyways.

I like to make cannabutter using a crock pot, a stick or two of butter, and a bunch of trim. Add the trim and butter to the crock, then top it off with water. Leave for 10-12 hours on LOW (I usually start it at high for a couple hours and switch it to low after an hour or two), stirring occasionally and adding more water if necessary. When finished, I strain out the plant material using a standard grocery store tea strainer, and put the butter + water mixture into a large dish/bowl and put in the fridge for a few hours. The butter will form a visible layer on top of the water which is easily removed once hardened. I wrap the finished product in foil and toss it in the freezer until I need it.
The beauty of this method is it traps the nasty unwanted plant material in the water, which you then discard once you've removed the butter.
One stick of butter can hold a ridiculous amount of THC (in the range of ounces), so it is up to you how strong to make it.
I whole-heartedly disagree with the comments of Harrekin above that making butter doesn't smell too strong. It stinks up EVERYTHING when making it, far less so when baking with it.
Yeah my wife hates when I make brownies.. That's why when she leaves @ 8:30 this am I'll be putting my apron on!

Or do the smart thing....
Fill a masson jar with butter, bud/trim and water. Seal it with a lid. Put it in a crockpot (slow cooker) with enough water to mostly cover the jar. The weed still cooks on low temp just fine but the house smells like nothing.
I left and came back after work and I could not smell weed in my apartment.
I baked cookies with Cannabutter. Worked fine. No smell other then cookies. Generally speaking the baked goods smell more then the weed.

With my method of making it, it smells out the whole house, but I usually turn on some fans and stuff
Hope I helped
you can also use a mason jar and place all your weed and oil (butter) and then put this into a hot water crockpot or pot... and there is no smell (less you open the jar) then once you bake the smell will appear but not as bad as open cooking..
FWIW... I have stopped making oils... why? I just decarb the weed then dry sift it into whatever I am making... seems to be more potent faster and if made right very nutty tasting
