Wow, now this is something I hadn't had since I was still a teenager! My parents made it all the time growing up when we lived in Seoul. They like to pretty much add leftovers from Thanksgiving like shredded turkey, spam, tofu, pork cutlets, bacon, whatever is available, of course kimchi. As far as buying kimchi in the stores, don't know any specific brands but I usually like to just make it myself because it's better that way to tailor the heat of the kimchi to your own individual preferences, and it's not that difficult to find the kimchi base. :)
