You probably have to back off the adjusters inside to release the shoes. Might have gone to long and the shoes are in a groove causing the drums not to come off.

Backing the adjusters off is the easiest way to do it.

I know what the OP is talking about. My old blazer had them. They didn't work that well since if they were really stuck on...you'd pop the threads out....then you got to go back to the BFH.

don't need a bolt, on really bad brake jobs I.e. the people who come in when they start hearing a noise, i use a 8lb sledge hammer.
so just beat the crap out of them. they'll fall off eventually.
