Maybe not even for a full night. I recently had a bag of Apple, that upon opening, I was ready to throw away. I left it out for a couple of hours, and suddenly, it smelled pretty good and smoked really well. I've also had success with Grape and Grape with Mint this way.
Not that this is an end-all solution. You may not always need to do it, and it may not always help. But it is something to consider and it definitely can help.
