I came across two 55 gallon drums for just a few dollars and my thought is to have one be the firebox and the other on top as the cooker.  Here is my main issue,  I know nothing about welding nor do I know anyone that welds.  Can I accomplish this idea without welding?   I am also looking for specific plans if anyone has any for me.  I am somewhat handy with tools, but I think this will be a fun project.  I just have to figure out what I need.  Thanks.

I don't know of a no weld double UDS. In fact I don't think it would still be a UDS. it would be a offset smoker I think. Search the smoker builds and see what you can find.

You can always build a singe drum UDS without welding.

Happy smoken.

There are stove kits that make a 55gal drum into a wood burning stove. I have seen a couple builds where cutting was involved but all attachments were made with bolts and gaskets. I will try to find a link for you.

Just as Omenusmc said they can be put together using bolts only with the stove kits but they will leak and wont be as efficient. Google "double barrel smoker". When I was thinking of doing a drum build I was using some of those pictures and info as references. Lots of good info out there under the double barrel name.

Yeah, you have to weld this thing. Here is my build.

 

You can certainly build a single drum with no welds, as you probably already know. There were instructions floating around the web.
