Back up and hit the brakes...
Hit the e-brake a couple of times...
Remove the wheel and drums, then adjust them till the drums barely slide on...
If you don't know how to adjust drum brake I would question your ability to change out the brake shoes...

there is a adj hole on the backing plate - jack up the axle ( both tires ) and use a flat blade to spin the adjusters, go untill there is a drag when spinning the tire backwards, then do the other side.
