Rockwell axle with air brakes

Well it is brake replacement time.
Got ready to pull drum and it is hung on the shoes.
I have the brake pods caged.
Got the drum to move about an inch then no more.
The drums are very worn with big groves visable.
Anyway is there a trick to getting the shoes to draw in farther?
Or just break out the torch and heat the drums.
Any ideas appreciated.

I had to pull the brake chamber to let some more pressure off the slack adjuster.
It has auto slack adjusters. there is no backing up to them.
