Question about 2002 Chevrolet S-10
Spray solvent around hub and inside through stud openings. make sure there are no retaining screws attaching it to the wheel flange, un-adjust brake shoes if there is access to adjuster on backing plate or through drum. Worst case, cut off the two 1/4" round stud ends that hold the shoes to the backing plate (usually just below center, visible on back of backing plate on each side) They are available at nearly every parts store and are cheap. Don't hesitate to use a good hammer blow on front outboard edge to "shock" it loose.
You are dealing with either a wear lip which is not going over the shoes or excessive rust at the hub. Mix and match solutions I listed and one or combination of them will get the drum off!
