High Density Aluminum Foil (HDAF)

I knew a guy that had some serious HDAF he used for cooks. Does anyone have a link to purchase some quality materials? I like Reynolds but I would prefer to buy in bulk to keep long term costs down. Any help is appreciated.


  • I buy the commercial grade stuff from Sams Club, works great and comes in a 5,000 foot roll I believe.

    I buy mine at Costco. I believe that BJs also has one.  Huge roll at Costco - very heavy and lasts a long time.

    My BJs doesn't carry anything special.  It is just Reynolds I believe.  Costco had the Kirkland brand that was a much better deal.  

    Which came first the chicken or the egg?  I egged the chicken and then I ate his leg.

    My BJ's has long rolls of heavy duty Reynolds wrap for a good price. They have it in the 12" and 18" width while the grocery store only has the HD in 18" and pretty short rolls.  I have not seen anything heavier than the HD wrap anywhere either for sale on in use.  

    No Costco here, so I cannot compare the price, but it is sure better than the grocery store if you want to invest in the big rolls.

    By the way, there are only a couple of companies who actually make aluminum foil.  Private brand stuff is probably Reynolds (which might be made in China anyways)

    I just bought the 2 roll pack of Reynolds from Costco. It didn't make sense to buy the Kirkland roll it was 500' for $17 something I believe or (2) 150' rolls of Reynolds for $13. For the minimal savings I prefer the ease of having smaller easier to store and deal with boxes.
  • Amazon-Reynolds extra HD. There is a guide online, and you can search here too, that specifies the thickness in mils so you can compare. This was dicsussed last year.They are not all the same, even tho they say HD.
