Need help with a CJ7 brake issue please

My CJ does something strange. When it is hot out, and I do a lot of stop and starting in heavy traffic, the brakes start to grab a bit. Normally when cold, the jeep rolls easily at a light or down a slight incline. Once this issues starts to happen, you can feel the jeep come to a stop and not want to roll. If
i take my right foot and set it behind the brake pedal and pull it out hard (I can feel it pull out a bit) then the jeep will free roll again.
So what is binding up that requires me to pull the brake level of after every stop in heat. Finally, when in this mode the brake light also stays on after you release the pedal, so park of my parking ritual is to reach in with m hand and pull the brake pedal out fully.
Any wisdom? Love to get this fixed!
Thanks

I say the rear drums are adjusted too tight. Heat expands things. Maybe its tightening up your brakes enough to make them rub.
