what a stink!

I just moved into a 6 year old house. The kitchen sink has an aweful smell. I've poured bleach and Drano to no avail. Pull the grease trap plug?

Check the vent pipe on the roof above the kitchen for clogging by leaves, birdnest, debris etc. Clean out what you can reach by hand, and flush the vent pipe down with a water hose sprayer.
A clogged vent pipe can cause water to be siphoned out of the trap, allowing sewer gas back into the kitchen.
Good Luck!
