Default Hay???

Having a little experience with hay as opposed to straw, I noticed he was using a grass type of hay in the video (timothy, orchardgrass, oat hay. etc) not a lequme hay such as alfalfa or pea hay or clover hay. It appears thas only a small amount of the hay actually smolders, the rest is used as a "cushon" or spacer to keep the roast off of the bottom of the pot. I wonder if he is still getting some moisture and fat from the pork also. I think I like the flavor of wood more than the smell of burnt grass---
