How would a mole inspired seasoning, designed for pork, work on lamb?

I'd planned grilling pork shoulder for tacos, then realized a guest doesn't eat pork, so I'm subbing in butterflied leg of lamb. I'd intended to rub the pork with Sally Schneider's Mole Inspired Seasoning from the Improvisational Cook: ancho chili powder, dark brown sugar, cinnamon cocoa, cumin, oregano. I already have a batch made up, but I'm not sure how this would taste on lamb, which seems gamier and less sweet than pork, to me. Thoughts?

Might be better with pork, but it should certainly work. Think of all the lamb curries and tagine there are -- a mole doesn't seem so far afield.

I think it sounds fantastic. Do it and tell us how it was. And hold that mint jelly!
