Smoking is one way of preserving meat, salting is another. Sometimes recipes call for brining a piece of meat before it is smoked, but really to smoke a piece of meat you need, wait for it.......... smoke.

Hot smoking (cooking) meat doesn't need to have any salt added to whatever you are smoking since it is going to be consumed or refrigerated right away. Cold smoking is used to preserve meats, usually after dry salt or brine curing.
