Or find the studs and use the truss head screws you asked about.
It seems like you're saying 2 different things?

Plywood or no plywood?

I still don't get what you're saying.

Which one?

A: Plywood
B: no plywood

I'll probably just go with what he says anyway

That would be drywall not plywood, unless you want to purchase fire rated 1/2" plywood at approx. $50 a sheet.

Now look up the flame spread rating for both plywood and drywall.

To get this thread back on topic before I close it.

If you want drywall as a fire break and that is a good idea. Plus the cost of drywall is much lower than plywood. You can predetermine where you will be attaching cabinets and put a 2x4 horizontal nailer securely between the studs at the right heights.

It is basically blocking screwed in to be strong. It is no different than what one should do in a bathroom when you know where the TP holder will be mounted or towel bars.

Now play nice boys.
