I recently brain smoked a rabbit hide, but didnt use salt and instead of a layer of fat he had thin layer if skin stuck to the hide that was difficult to remove without tearing holes. I didnt do as good as i would have liked to, but contined with the next step, washed it, pulled off what i could, soaked it in brains overnight. Rinsed it off, worked it until it was almost but not completely dry and smoked it for a few hours. It turned dark brown, felt really soft and workable until it dried completely. Now its rock hard. How can i reconstitute it without ruining it, and do i need to resmoke it?
