I buy coal by the bag, and looking at my stacked bags you described approx. 2 bags @ 40 lbs each. So I would say 80 lbs. Maybe a hair more.

Thanks all, I am just curious and wasn't sure of the formula. I tend to believe once I pile it up it's probably closer to the upper limits of those guesstimates, thanks.
