Soaking will help, but it is going to require a considerable amount of time. 2-3 hours won't cut it. Overnight probably would. Problem then, is you will have severely altered the texture and you start getting seperation in the fibers. It will end up less salty but of inferior texture. Then too, it will need to be run through the smoker again(modestly) to impart at least some fresh flavor.
This process will restore some quality, but overall you will be less than happy. As you can imagine, anything that has been first moist, then wet, then hot and dry, and then soaked and then hot and dry again, is going to become less than desirable.
My suggestion is that you use it in some dish that allows for considerable dillution, due to it being blended with a fairly large volume of other
Then chalk it up to a learning experience.
Sorry it happened. Let us know what you end up doing and how it worked. Maybe we can all learn something from this. Sorry that it has to be at your expense.
Good luck my friend.
