Penetrating oil as mentioned is a good start. I would use something like Kroil or liquid wrench. I would soak it good for a day. Tap the stud a few times with the hammer and then get your vice grips good and tight on it. Heat around the stud and then see if it moves at all. If it moves you sometimes need to work it back and forth a bit to keep from re-breaking it. Your vice grips should be some what of a heat sink to keep the stud cooler, but you can also get some of that freeze spray and spray the stud right after you've heated around it just before trying to twist it out. Good luck, it's a pain in the butt!
