I had the square flange that the brake assembly attaches to break on a recent trip, allowing the brakes to rub against the drum, radiating the heat to the hub....that hub got too hot to touch.
The Red 'N" Tacky grease still looks good. I didn't check the grease during the incident, but I saw no signs of any leak around the dust cap to drum connection or the rubber plug due to any thinning out of the grease. There might have been some thinning, as I did have to replace that brake assembly due to shoe grease saturation, but I believe that was mostly due to the rear seal getting so hot that it did not function properly because of the high heat. My trailer mechanic didn't see any problems with the bearings or races.
