Most edible canned/packaged soup?

My wife and I cook ahead and freeze for just such occassions. Soup cooking day once every 1-2 months yields a nicely rotating selection frozen in 1qt freezer bags. When we do this we usually cook two at a time. Like Chili and Chicken Soup. I never add noodles to soups and stews I'm going to freeze. I keep some cooked pasta in the fridge to add during the reheat process w/ a dash of water or stock.

When did fake crab meat become so ubiquitous? And why isn't anyone else complaining?

I complain by absolutely refusing to order/eat anything with it in it. I got a kani at a sushi restaurant recently that came made with that stuff. Very politely and discretely I sent it back and reminded them that, that was not crab. It was something else. They were nice about it and explained that most people seem not to care but told me what to order exactly to get the real thing. It cost a little more but the taste was incomparable! So good. I order it every time I go there now. So good....

Dual Fuel Outdoor BBQ Grill

I'm looking for a recommendation for an outdoor grill that won't cost two arms and a leg with the ability to do charcoal and gas. Something like this but less $$...

Anyone have any experience or recommendations about such a thing?

Thank you for any advice you may be able to offer.
