Stucco for BBQ island - directly onto hardibacker

I'm building a BBQ island with steel stud and hardibacker board.

Can I apply stucco directly onto the hardibacker board with no wires?

I'm looking to do a fine stucco texture with little specs in it, can you give me some recommendation?

I'm a painter not a mason but they apply Drivet directly to cement board or foam so I would think you could do the same with stucco. The stucco finish is mostly derived from how it is troweled on.

Bet your going to end up hating it.
Reason being it's going to be imposable to clean.
One of my customers had this done and has tried everything to get the grease stains off.
