Your statement is written in a way that' a bit confusing, but when you say "I've smoked tons before" it sort of sounds like you should be smart enough to have some papers, make a lung/bong/pipe, or get some blades heated up. I personally only ever used foil as an extremely short term fix (i.e. one or two bowls), and that's not making an entire piece out of it.
Remember, aluminum isn't a smoking device, it's a short term repair/utility item, used to temporarily make a bowl with a broken stem or a pipe without a screen better to smoke. Imagine it as the duct tape of marijuana paraphernalia.
