Has anyone ever cooked mussels in Hay?

I am wondering what it would taste like. I am going to experiment with this. I think it will be a unique way of doing it.
Haven't tried it myself but if a hay stack can develop enough heat to combust spontaneously it can surely produce enough heat to cook mussels. They typically cook at a simmer (180 - 200 degrees).
Trick would be to find the right combination of hydration, density and ambient atmospheric conditions to support the temperature needed for the experiment. Got a long probed digital thermometer?
Where would we be without Google and a few key words? The flavors this method would impart are interesting making it worth a try. Will be looking for your results. Thanks for sharing.
