rear brake drum stuck

I wanted to look at the rear brake shoes on my 2002 Safari (74K miles); I've never had the drums off. One came off easily, the other is really stuck. It seems loose at the studs and at the edge (at the shoes), but is stuck at the center of the hub. I was thinking of using a gear puller on it, but mine is not big enough; needs to be capable of about 11" diameter. Anybody have any good ideas?

The star adjuster should be easily accessible via a hole at the bottom of the backing plate; there's a little rubber plug installed in the hole. Remove the plug and you should have access.

I'm puzzled. :confused:
I've worked on a few gm's that didn't have the rubber plug but had a knock out plate over the hole. kinda like a breaker box you pop the plate off to run a wire through
