So your break is a good distance away from where it is brazed, and you should be able to weld it without damaging the brazed joint. Some people will use a damp rag to prevent overheating.

I'd probably just grind in a deep V, then weld it up. TIG? Carefully cutting/filing a gusset to go in the triangle is a good idea, but may not be vital, and would certainly increase the heat affected area. You'll do best if any welding is ground back flush with the machined part of the dropout.
