Can stucco be placed directly on Hardibacker board ?
I don't want to hassle with a metal mesh if I don't have to. My assumption is if I use concrete adhesive and then stucco, it should be fine but want answers from people that know or have done this.
As for the heat of the barbecue, I don't think that will be a problem since I see this method of contsruction on commerically sold barbecues.
As for the adhesive there are commerical adhesive that you apply on concrete which helps adheres aditional concrete or stucco. I was thinking of this since hardibacker board is made of cement.
