Rear brakes - 88 K1500 truck

Does anyone know an easy way to adjust the rear brakes on an 88 K1500 Chevy truck ???? This is the half ass'd setup where the adjuster is between the axle and the wheel cylinder.
It's quite the Mickey Mouse setup. There was nothing wrong with the old tried and true setup with the adjuster on the bottom that could be adjusted through a hole in the backing plate. I hate engineers !!!!!!

Just turn it out until it just kisses the drum, then turn it back in two clicks. Yes, its a pain to keep pulling off the drum, but its the best way without the hole.
