Top layer to bbq grill

Hello,
I'm building a brick grill with a charcoal insert on one side and a gas grill on the other. In between I want to have a table top. My thought is to mortar cement board and mortar the bricks to the cement board. The table top will be 31" X 32".

A. I still have N type mortar that I used to install the bricks, will the mortar adhere the board to the bricks?

B. Will the board support the weight? Does it need to once the mortar dries?

Thanks

"My thought is to mortar cement board and mortar the bricks to the cement board." I don't understand what you are saying?

A. Yes, mortar will stick cement board to brick.

B. Will what board support what weight? If you are considering using cement board as a shelf to support your grills or counter top the answer is "no". Cement board is not structural.
