Correct J-Box selection and placing


Hiya,
Need to install a new j-box for a monster Bosch induction cooktop. Was thinking about running 6-2WG behind sheetrock and then into a metal j-box that I would simply post on the wall inside the cooktop cabinet (as opposed to inside the wall). Therefore, the j-box would be fully exposed underneath the cabinet. Does this fit code? Would this method be more suited for a plastic j-box?

Thanks guys.

You could use a metal box and ground it but would have to be deep enough for tha wires an wire-nuts. I think i would use a plastic box like a 4x4x2
