Don't boil them whatever you do.  They need to be very slowly simmered for up to ten minutes.  Any contcat with boiling water and they'll split.  When you eat them, you peel the skin off and eat the inside.  Serve with pretzel (bretzi) and sweet mustard.  The best Bavarian one is [1]Handlmaier's.

I'll be downing some next weekend at Octoberfest.

I believe Weisswurst are traditionally boiled, not steamed.  Served with
wheat beer:
(In that article, you've gotta love a culture with a concept of a
"second breakfast".  Then again, Bavaria has clothing specifically
designed to cover up a beer and sausage gut.)

Weisswurst most certainly should NOT be punctured.  It'll end up
waterlogged and ooze all over the place.  They're nothing like as fatty
as English bangers.

Wikipedia piece says 10 minutes.
