Dissolve 1 cup salt, 1/2 cup sugar, and 2 tablespoons liquid smoke in 4 quarts of cold water in a large container. Submerge the pork in the brine, cover with plastic wrap, and refrigerate for 2 hours.
While the pork brines, combine the mustard and remaining 2 teaspoons liquid smoke in a small bowl. Set aside. Combine the black pepper, paprika, cayenne, the remaining 2 tablespoons sugar, and the remaining 2 teaspoons salt in a second small bowl. Set aside.
