HQ stockpot?

Where can I find good quality very large pots for the stovetop?

My local Smart & Final has plenty that are huge enough for me (even a 100qt one), but they all seem too thin-bottomed for good temperature distribution. And aluminum, which isn't ideal IIRC.

And if you have trouble getting to a restaurant supply, home brewing supplies also have them.
